I handcraft sustainable jewelry in New York City, my collection is sold throughout the United States and internationally. I am passionate about the living consciously and committed to continually improving my environmental performance as part of my business strategy and operations. I hope as a customer you will enjoy reading a bit of background to how I am doing my small part to provide you with not only a beautiful but also environmentally friendly product.

Metals: All metals are sourced from a supplier certified to sell fine gold, silver and brass with 100% recycled content.

Gems: I strive to ensure all gemstones I use in my jewelry are ethically sourced. I am really concerned with the principles behind the diamond industry. For me, the best way to ensure that a diamond is not from an area of conflict is to purchase a cultured diamond. A lab-grown diamond should not be confused with cubic zirconia or other types of “fake” diamond; it is a real diamond, but one that happens to be completely cruelty-free. Should I use a naturally produced diamond it will be from a retailer who sources diamonds who abides by the Kimberly Process Certification Scheme, a system which is designed to eradicate the blood diamond from the global gem trade.

Packaging: Your jewelry will arrive to your home in a pretty signed jewelry box made from 100% recycled paper. My business cards and promotional material are all printed on paper sourced from sustainable forests and chlorine free.

Local Suppliers: I am also passionate about supporting local businesses. I ensure that all my supplies and subcontractor services are sourced from local businesses so supporting the local community and reducing C02 emissions by avoiding lengthy transport.
