Sustainability


                                                              Slow. Simple. Sustainable. 

Slow Fashion

All pieces are made by hand, small batch, in my studio located in Burgundy France.

Simple Design

Minimalist, timeless design to be worn season to season, year after year.

Sustainable Materials

Recycled and Upcycled Glass

All pieces are made from discarded wine bottles collected from the local recycling depot, friends, bars and restaurants.  The bottles are cleaned and the labels removed using simply water, vegetable oil and baking soda. Never any harmful detergents.

Recycled/Recycled Content 925 Sterling Silver 

The sterling silver used in is sourced in France from a supplier currently in the process of obtaining membership in The Responsible Jewellery Council,  the only independently verified sustainability standard for the global jewellery and watch industry covering the entire supply chain, from mine to retail.

The chains used in the designs are 100% recycled  925 silver, the bracelets, rings and other findings contain 30% to 50% recycled content.  Our supplier is working towards fully recycled silver findings and we will make that transition with them.

18K Gold Plated 925 Sterling Silver

The same supplier does our plating with 1 micron of 18K gold on 925 sterling silver.

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is an affordable alternative to precious metals and extremely resistant. It is made from minimum 60% recycled material and is 100% recyclable.  All stainless steel components used in designs are sourced in Europe.

Packaging

No plastics.  All packaging has been thoughtfully sourced and is fully recyclable and/or compostable.

  • shipping boxes and jewelry boxes are FSC certified, made from recycled and/or recyclable materials and fully compostable.
  • the kraft packing tape used to seal the shipping boxes is fully recyclable /compostable.
  • earring cards and business cards are made from recycled t-shirts and can be recycled or composted.
  • cotton jewelry bags are hand stamped in house and can be reused for all sorts of tiny treasures.

Carbon Neutral

Great care has been taken to ensure that the least amount of packaging be used for shipping.  Less for you to deal with when unboxing and less bulk in transport which allows me to send most orders as letters via La Poste.

French mail service, La Poste, guarantees the total carbon neutrality of all delivery solutions , including larger packages.
