Sterling silver is the basis of much of my work, so you can imagine how thrilled I was to find a tiny company that recycles sterling silver.
Mining is not kind to the environment. Pit lakes, the result of thousands of silver mines in California and Australia poison our water supply and wildlife. Cyanide, mercury and lead are the by products of silver mining. And while companies are working hard to find an eco friendly solution, more companies are finding ways to recycle the current supply.
The mother and child birch leaves is the first piece made with entirely recycled sterling silver.
I've also been working with rustic brass; it's environmentally friendly, 100% nickel free and lead free compliant. And, while I am primarily known for a more modern style ( even when I use vintage maps) I am enjoying working with the more romantic side of my brain.
Both pieces are currently available in my etsy shop.
