How Green is your Supplier?

So we've put together a ten point criteria, the Green Gauge, that we ask all our partners, your wedding suppliers, to comply with for your peace of mind. The wedding industry covers a broad activity base and you will have your own benchmark of how 'green' you want your suppliers to be. We happily accept wedding suppliers who are trying their best and can check 4 or more criteria on our Green Gauge.

Glasswing Jewellery - Hand Forged & Ethical

Glasswing Jewellery was established in Cornwall in 2005, by goldsmith Kate Pearse. She continues to develop her range of hand forged, eco-friendly and ethical jewellery, having relocated in early 2016, she now works in a gorgeous workshop on the South Devon coast,  just 1/2 hour from the beautiful city of Exeter.

My work is inspired by the infinite forms and beauty of the natural world, particularly the coastal and dramatic moorland region in which I live and work. I love clean lines, and warm, rustic, organic textures.

I've been working almost exclusively with ethically sourced gemstones and recycled precious metals for over 7 years. Specialising in contemporary engagement rings and wedding rings I make almost everything to order. I enjoy designing jewellery in consultation with individual customers to create bespoke, personal pieces destined to last a lifetime, and become the heirlooms of the future.

I source fairtrade gemstones from specialist suppliers. They are fully traceable to the mines from which they are extracted, through the cutting and importing processes. I use recycled and fairtrade / fairmined gold and silver from eco-friendly bullion dealers here in the UK and the US. I consider the recycled diamonds I source,to be the ultimate non-conflict choice, most of which are GIA certified. I can also source ethical new mined diamonds, and find stones to suit all budgets.

I also specialise in sea glass jewellery and rings, using genuine sea glass (or "beach glass") found on the beaches of Devon, Cornwall and throughout the world.

A very small selection of jewellery and rings is sometimes available for immediate dispatch.

Handmade in the UK, delivered worldwide.
