We couldn’t be more excited to share with you the life-changing magic of Bent by Courtney. Check out our interview with Courtney herself on all the ways we live well when we shop local!
1. What’s special about Bent by Courtney?
Bent by Courtney is a sustainable, eco-friendly and handmade jewelry company. Our commitment to quality jewelry is what makes us special. Bent by Courtney Jewelry is made with 14k Gold Filled metal, which is a runner up to solid gold but much more affordable. We only use sustainably sourced metals and gemstones in our designs. That’s why you will never see any plastic, resin or imitation stones in any of our products – if it’s not good for the planet, it’s not good for us! Bent by Courtney is the only 1% For the Planet member in Columbus, GA – pledging 1% of annual sales to organizations that help clean and protect our planet.
2. What’s great about your location in the brand new and beautiful Mill District Studios?
My studio has been in Bibb City since 2014 and it’s unreal how much has changed since then. I recently moved into the new Mill District Studios and I love it! This area has so much potential and I think the location is what I love most. It’s convent to almost every part of town! I am very excited to see all the ways this area will develop over the coming years!
3. What’s coming up for your business?
We have a busy Spring schedule coming up with lots of pop up markets and shows here and out of town! Starting April 6th, we’ll be back at Market Days on Broadway every Saturday and will have more events to announce on our Instagram @bentbycourtney !
