Handcrafted Silver and Gold Jewellery with a conscience.
I am very aware of my footprint and impact on the environment as a jeweller. I have been changing suppliers and rethinking my approach to making. I can now happily say that 90% of metals used are recycled, having opted for Eco silver or reusing any metal I have in stock. The gold I am using is either recycled 9t gold or gold vermeil, the latter is still standard as there is an acute shortage of companies in the UK that use Fair Mined gold for plating and at present demand outweighs supply, but hopefully this will change soon.
This won’t happen overnight but is an important step towards sustainability.
As you may know the collections made are very small, with pieces often being one-offs and going forward more pieces will be made to order to reduce waste, so if you have an urgent time frame please get in touch directly and I will do my best to help.
All the stones I currently use, both precious and semi precious, have been sourced form trusted suppliers ensuring they are conflict free and have been sourced from smaller arisanal mines that pay fair wages and have reasonable working conditions. However, there is always some kind of environmental impact so bearing that in mind I would like to be able to use more vintage or achaic relics from sustainable sources such as glass.
Currently my packaging is both recycled and recyclable, I reuse postage packets where possible.
I hope you can appreciate these efforts do take time, but we all can do better and any steps however small, will have an impact. So buying a piece of jewellery from me should allow you to feel pretty special in the knowledge that we are all doing our best.
In these difficult times I appreciate more than ever the support of customers and fellow small business owners and I am grateful to be in a position to be able to help in some small way.
My jewellery is not mass produced and my outlets are modest so when you buy, you are really are supporting a small business. THANKYOU !
