Each piece of jewellery is made in Ciara’s East London studio with the sustainable future of the jewellery in mind. Working with reputable suppliers to source recycled gemstones from unworn jewellery and using recycled gold, the Symbols collection is a capsule collection responding to the materials available and the designers love of pattern and clashing colours.
Recycled metals and gems are a fantastic eco-friendly option, as opposed to newly mined materials that can have devastating effects on the environment. A big (and fun) part of the process is working with our fantastic contacts in the trade, as well as searching for old jewels at markets and boot fairs with so much potential to be given a new lease of life. We also encourage our clients to unearth their own unworn jewels where we can reuse both the gemstones and the metal to make a brand new piece of jewellery that can be worn and enjoyed making them into future heirlooms that will stand the test of time.
Sustainability within the jewellery industry is a hot topic, and rather than just following a trend we believe that this should be the way forward and the norm for designing for the future. Reusing and recycling has always been inherent to the jewellery industry, so why not make it central to the concept of the jewellery itself!
