Consumerism: How can we all be part of the solution and not be the problem ?
This year, we are changing the way we work .... and radically.
We'd like to invite you to take part in a Beta experiment to test our idea.
We are creating a closed loop sustainability system. Its a risk, we don’t know if it’ll catch on or if its easy to understand, but we are giving it a try. We hope you'll jump on board with this radical approach to slow fashion and ethics and take part in a new way to buy jewellery by bartering old jewellery as part of the cost and save some money along the way.
What this means practically, a way to recycle broken bits of jewellery when making a purchase. Odd earrings, broken chains, rings, things that have been stepped on or mangled with stones missing, bits of gold jewellery that just don’t cut it any more. All can be swapped for new jewellery from our collections.
If you are interested in taking part, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll give you the details.
How does this become a closed loop system ? We make the jewellery that you send us into new jewellery ! Some of the things we make will become unique jewels and some pieces will be part of our range of collections
Closed loop sustainability is recycling a material indefinitely without degradation of the materials properties. For us, this is the conversion of old jewellery back to raw materials and made into new jewellery in house defined by Sian’s design ethos and approach. Gold, like many metals is an ideal material to recycle indefinitely. But, you need some pretty ninja skills to do this, which we have in bags.
Hope you hear from you..... we would appreciate any feed back , even if you think its a rubbish idea..... tell us why
