PARTNER FOCUS - GREEN UNION is Delighted to Introduce Ethical Fine Jeweller, Lisa Rothwell-Young
29th May 2020
Hi, I’m Lisa, nice to meet you!
That I'll craft you a beautiful piece of jewellery is a given. But for me, jewellery is about connection and meaning. I'm not interested in the whole 'buying the biggest diamond you can afford' school of thought, or jewellery that's meant to show how rich or impressive you are. Nope, that does nothing for me. The jewellery industry is built on massive marketing campaigns that tell you to buy this or do that. Let's do less 'following the crowd', more of the doing it differently and making something you truly connect with.
I'm about carefully handcrafted meaningful pieces that tell your story. Making with intention and integrity, working sustainably and sourcing precious metals and gemstones from people I trust.
Recycling and reusing your old or unworn jewellery is about as sustainable as it gets. If you have old jewellery I'll happily reuse it to make your new piece. Failing that, I can source recycled or Fairmined metal and ethical gemstones and diamonds (you'll find lots more info here).
My collections all have a story behind them too, you'll find out more about them on my website. These pieces were inspired by my memories and experiences, but many people share these connections, too.
If you'd like to chat to me about a possible commission, you're welcome to give me a call or drop me an email. I can take orders for pieces from the collections, for delivery after the restrictions end too. I'd love to hear from you and listen to your stories. You can tell me as little or as much as you're comfortable with. It's always nice to hear how and where you met and the things that evoke those special memories for you as a couple. If you’d like to work with me, let's have a chat and take it from there.
I'm filling my time at the minute with running, working on a new website and growing veg. 've taught the pup to shake a paw, planted a hedge and I've cleaned out my kitchen cupboards. I don't usually have much time for creative things outside of my workshop, but I have some clay that I'm going to make into puts and woodfire. It's about 15 years since I made any pottery, so we'll see how it goes.
I'm grateful for the slower pace of life and the lack of deadlines at the moment and I hope something good can come out of this devastating pandemic. My thoughts are with everyone who has lost someone dear to them.
