Preserving the environment is of great importance to me and, given the natural themes found in much of my work, it’s no surprise that it’s also a priority for many of my customers.
I ensure that the great majority of the metals I use are guaranteed recycled. All of the sheet and wire stock is 100% recycled and the sterling chain I use is manufactured in the USA, meaning it is almost certainly recycled but has not been certified as such. I use only low impact chemicals which means finding alternatives to the harsh acids and fluxes typlically used in jewelry makeing. With a little thoughtfulness a studio can be made cleaner without comprising the quality of the jewelry. Its easier on my health, the health the man and cat I share a home with and the health of the planet. To learn more about these alternatives, please read my Green Your Studio blog post.
Sustainability also means longevity. My jewelry is designed to last and the styles are classic. And if you order online, you’ll be happy to know that your jewelry will come in eco-friendly Kraft recycled gift boxes and recycled all-paper padded mailers.
