Elegant, Modern, Ethical Jewellery for Men and Women
My ethos is simple - I don’t think jewellery, which holds such strong emotional ties, should be made with materials or processes that are harmful to the environment and the people who help to craft it.
I work from a small London studio hand crafting elegant modern jewellery for men and women using ethical materials and I really believe that the making and wearing of jewellery should be a joyful experience. I want you to buy jewellery you are proud of that is made from truly beautiful materials worthy of the special moments it celebrates.
This is why, when I launched my first collection of wedding and civil partnership rings, I could think of no better materials than Fairtrade gold to represent couples sharing their future together! These classic rings are handmade from beautiful 18ct rose gold, yellow gold and white gold.
As a Fairtrade gold licencee all of my gold pieces are stamped with the Fairtrade symbol guaranteeing the gold has been mined in safe, fair and environmentally responsible conditions. The Fairtrade system provides vulnerable small-scale mining communities with the stability and resources to take control of their futures.
I love working closely with customers and specialise in creating bespoke jewellery for those wanting something unique
The process begins with a relaxed chat about your vision. This could be as simple as personalising one of my existing designs by adding a stone or engraving, or using my signature style to inspire the creation of a piece that is totally unique to you.
I use Fairtrade gold and 100% recycled platinum as well as conflict free Canadian diamonds and ethical gems in my bespoke engagement rings and, as befits the bespoke process I make everything using traditional techniques right here in my London studio. You can book a design consultation with me in person or have a chat by phone or email.
My ready-to-wear collections and cufflinks, which can be viewed and purchased on my website, are made from 100% recycled silver.
My journey to becoming truly sustainable has just begun and here are some of the other small steps I have taken to that end: recycle and compost as much as possible; reduced the use of harmful chemicals in the workshop, replacing them with natural ingredients such as lemon juice and vinegar; use 100% recycled packaging.
