ABOUT US

sustainable style
handmade to order

Since 2010 we have specialised in using reclaimed raw materials and craftmanship to make sustainable jewellery that is both unique and personal.

Everything about our jewellery feels hand made and we love the little imperfections that come from some of the traditional techniques used in production.

All our distinctive elements are designed by us and made by skilled artisans from Cornwall to West Africa.

recycled PEWTER

The pewter elements are made by a father and son team in Cornwall. The pewter is 100% lead free and the tin and copper content is sourced from recycled electronics.

recycled BRONZE

Like our pewter, the recycled bronze is also produced by the family duo in Cornwall. Using a lost wax process each piece starts off being hand moulded and the tools used are visible on every piece.

RECYCLED GLASS

From West Africa our recycled glass beads have a wonderful sea worn quality. Individually handmade using clay moulds fired in earth kilns, each piece is completely unique and all the gorgeous colours are produced purely from the original glass with no added chemicals.

recycled brass

The recycled brass is also from West Africa and comes from old plumbing fittings that are transformed using an ancient Asante Lost Wax Process. Each piece is first hand moulded in wax and eventually fired in a simple earth kiln. The whole process gives the metal a wonderful worn quality.

DISCARDED COCONUT

The coconut charms are made by a small group of disabled crafts people on a remote island in the Indian Ocean. Coconuts are one of the very few excess resources on the island.

Handmade for you

All these wonderful elements arrive at our workshop in Stroud where we use them to make and hand stamp each piece to order. This whole story is what gives every one of our pieces it’s own unique identity that is all about traditional skills and good clean design.
