The materials and suppliers I use for my jewellery collection are all ethically sourced, fair-trade or recycled. 

IETI Ethical Trading Initiative

I work with suppliers who are signed up to an ethical declaration regarding human rights, minimum working age etc. and they have previously been audited by SEDEX which is an independent organisation that monitors suppliers ethical performance.

I source materials from fully licensed members of Fair-trade; they can support both the other licensees and the Small Goldsmiths Scheme.

Eco Gold and Eco Silver 
Comes from a company suppling fully audited, 100% recycled silver and gold using their own refiner.


The companies comply with all UK legislation such as REACH , COSHH, WEE.
