Sustainability


I’m making my own contributions, and changing my practices to reduce my carbon footprint. I hope you’ll join me in creating a sustainable future, by supporting my small business and choosing to CarbonClick with your purchase!

There’s only one thing I'm more passionate about than our business… the planet! This is why I'm making an effort to use sustainable practices in every part of my business. I’ve teamed up with CarbonClick, a New Zealand company making it easy for people and businesses to help fight climate change.

CarbonClick looks like a green button at checkout. When you click it, a small contribution is added to your basket which purchases carbon offsets. These offsets reduce the environmental impact of the carbon emissions related to the purchase. CarbonClick’s offsets fund forest restoration, tree planting, and renewable energy projects around the world. I'm proud to be part of the fight against climate change.

I do my best in being as sustainable in my jewelry packaging as possible. Jewelry is packaged in Kraft recycled gift boxes. Recycled Kraft paper covers each 100% recycled cardboard box (made with 90% post-consumer fiber and 10% pre-consumer fiber).  When ever I get a package in the mail with kraft paper I save it to reuse as folded inserts to give extra protection to your jewelry pieces. Jewelry boxes are then mailed in Ecoenclosed Recycled Bubble Mailers the world’s most eco-friendly bubble mailers -- made with at least 32.6% recycled content and fully reusable and recyclable!

In the studio I practice reusing and recycling as much as I can. I purchase recycled sterling silver when available through Rio Grande Jewelry Supply. All scrap metals (sterling, copper, and brass) left over from projects are saved and reused. Whenever I can, I love using secondhand materials that I can upcycle. These vary from what I can find like stones, beads, bullet cases, thread, yarn, plastic, and tins. The possibilities are endless in jewelry design!
