Sustainable materials:

"What's it all about?"

 

Traditional craft materials such as precious metals, animal ivory and epoxy resin are fast becoming materials of the past to make room for the new eco-alternatives in order to promote green design attitudes both in the manufacturing and consumer world.

Eco-Gold

 

Eco-gold is the brand new material for contemporary metalsmiths involved in sustainable and ethical manufacturing, alike to Eco-silver it is 100% recycled and turned into stock for suppliers and Jewellers in the UK and select international countries. The use of Eco-gold reduces the demand on mines and therefore preserves the limited natural resources left to the natural world.

Although Gold is still mined worldwide, there is an increasing focus on encouraging horticultural and environmental limitations to ensure the well-being and sustainability of our communities.
