Ethical making, materials and packaging
Eco friendly awareness and ethical making is at the heart of the studio. Each piece of jewellery is cast from organic materials that Eily collects and finds in her environment into recycled metals. There is enough silver and gold mined already and recycled metals are refined to exactly the same quality as newly mined metals. In fact all metal is about 90% recycled anyways, but Eily would rather leave that 10% where it belongs and use 100% recycled. All work is hallmarked for your purity assurance.
Each piece is carefully packaged into it’s own black recycled jewellery box. Each one is gold foil printed for a luxe feel with Eily’s recognisable logo.
They come tied with black ribbon that's made from recycled bottles. All tissue that wraps the boxes is acid free tissue. All bags used are recycled black bags.
All postcards, business cards, padded envelopes and information leaflets are printed on recycled paper.
A lot of Eily’s stones are sourced ethically or Fairtrade but supply is low so not all stones can be sourced in this manner. Antique stones are always favoured and always happy to discuss using any stones you may have to insert into a piece.
Eily is also learning how to cut stones herself at a lapidary club she is (voluntary) secretary of and attends. It fuels her keen interest and understanding for unique cuts and she buys locally cut gemstones when they are available.
