Handcrafted with zero waste recycled silver filings, dust and offcuts, the repurposed silver is melted together and plated with 18ct Fairmned gold vermeil to create these one of a kind organic forms.

Why Recycled Silver and Gold?
Precious metal mining is aggressive and can destroy homes, landscapes and habitats. We use silver and gold that has been melted down in a refinery and repurposed which means no unnecessary disrubtive mining.
We also use Fairtrade Gold both in its raw from and for our 18ct Yellow Gold Vemeil/ Plating. Fairtrade Gold is the world's first independent ethical certification system for gold. Fairtrade Gold makes a real difference to the lives of miners, their families and communities. Buying Fairtrade Gold means you know the small-scale and artisanal miners were paid a fair price, giving them financial security.
We are a small brand who believes in looking after the planet and; the people and animals on it. We love what we do and hope you do also.
All of packaging is made from recycled materials which can be recycled when you have finished with it!
