As a maker, it is important for us to be aware of how and from where our materials came to us. We want to have control over the whole making process, we want to know how long our products will last, and how they can be maintained and recycled.
Recycled precious metal
All of the precious metal I use comes from a reliable company in Sweden. They collaborate with a company in Germany with years of experience in recycling metals. The company is certified by the LBMA, which means that the precious metal has gone through ethically and ecologically approved processes of refining.
Recycled metal means that all of the material comes from old jewellery pieces and scrap from production etc. I myself collect all of my tiny scrap pieces of metal and all of the dust, and send it to be recycled. We even send in our vacuum cleaner bags, which can contain a lot of precious metall dust from our studio’s floor!!
Precious metals such as gold and silver can keep their quality until the end of times. We can recycle the metals and use them again and again.
From raw material to the finished piece
We begin with a raw piece of metall. It can be a sheet of silver, or a bar of gold. We shape it into a desired form by sawing, hammering, milling, bending, and soldering the material. After that we make different kinds of textures through filing, polishing, and sand blasting etc. Except for stone setting, hand engraving and casting, we do all steps of the process in our studio with our own hands.
Our hope is that our jewellery will be used for a long time, which means that they need to be cared after. Silver can oxidise and get a darker color, ring sizes sometimes need to be changed after some years. Something could get deformed or damaged. We are here to take care of our sold jewellery as much as possible. We can do this with ease because we know the whole process behind our jewellery!
