Since Andrew Jackson planted the first magnolia tree on the White House lawn from a sprout from another tree close to his home, recycling has been important to White House occupants. The Obama’s are no exception to this legacy and have commissioned jewelry designer, Kara Ross to create wood cuffs and trays to be presented as gifts to visiting heads of state and their spouses. The accessories will be made from wood fallen from White House trees and have the President and first lady’s name on each. Such a chic gift! We wouldn’t expect anything less from such a stylish family.

Marissa Collections currently has two versions of Kara Ross' wood cuffs, ebony and maple. They make for an attractive addition to any ensemble looking for a special touch. Wear one on each wrist for definite dramatic impact.

Accessorize away,
