Slow Fashion is an awareness and approach to fashion, which considers the processes and resources required to make clothing and jewellery, particularly focusing on sustainability.
It involves buying better-quality items that will last for longer and values fair treatment of people, animals and the planet.
At Jewellery Collective, we only use ethically sourced gemstones and recycled silver and precious metals. We also save each little speck of metal dust and all of the off-cuts to recycle. Nothing is ever wasted in our studio.
The process of crafting something with your own two hands is truly special and we aim to educate our jewellery students on ethical and sustainable ways to create beautiful jewellery.
We have also been implementing ways to reduce the number of chemical we use in our studio and this is proving to be quite a challenge!
We are so lucky to be able to work with beautiful gemstones and metals and we hope that by implementing sustainable studio practices, we can minimise our impact on the earth.
Jewellery Collective has a Blog where we share our studio news, discuss teaching methods and interview amazing jewellers from Australia and around the world. Sign up to our monthly newsletter to keep updated.
