It is not often that a person will come across a creation that purposefully complicates an otherwise simple action, but that is exactly what the Green Tree Jewelry Light Switch Plates do. Nevertheless, that is the beauty of each one. Inspired by steampunk aesthetics, these unique light switch plates turn on and off the lights by starting the motion of intricate gears and levers. Most of them require a cranking action to get them started.

A family business founded by Lance Sr., his wife Margie and their son LJ, the Green Tree Jewelry Light Switch Plates are manufactured in the United States from which they hail. They are specifically based in San Diego, California. Although their main purpose is to design affordable and fun jewelry from renewable resources, the switch plates are receiving a lot of attention.
