fine jewelry with a conscience.
every action and each purchase has a personal responsibility interlaced with it.
the metal mining and gemstone industries have major environmental and ethical impacts. much of this mining is done in countries that do not have strict (if any) laws protecting the land, the miners or those living in close proximity to the mines. as a direct result our land, water and air is polluted, forests are torn down, communities are destroyed, humans are mistreated, water is wasted, wars are created, child labor is forced and the list goes on.
because of this, the majority of jewelry available today is created using gemstones and metals from untraceable sources and these sources are negatively impacting the environment and its inhabitants.
my mission is to bring this awareness to the forefront and to use my artistic gifts to create fine jewelry mindfully.
