I use recycled metals wherever possible, buying from local suppliers who themselves use a mix of recycled and where any 'new' metals are New Zealand & Australian sourced. In the workshop I use environmentally friendly processes to make your jewellery, making sure each piece gets to you without having hurt the planet.
I source non-conflict diamonds and other semi-precious gemstones from New Zealand based distributors who follow procedures to assure we use only the best!
While I used to buy Fairtrade gold from international suppliers, I believe that using recycled metals is one step better. If you would like me to source Fairtrade certified gold for your piece, just let me know!
