Susannah Brookes Sustainable Jewellery Design
Susannah Brookes Sustainable Jewellery Design creates unique heirloom jewellery using wedding dress lace and recycled silver. Brides-to-be are able to preserve their dress in jewellery that will last a lifetime. Susannah makes elegant and timeless pieces by imprinting the pattern of the lace, using off-cuts when the dress is made. Bangles, rings, earrings and necklaces can all be made, and cufflinks work beautifully too, for the groom. The jewellery might be kept by the bride who can wear the memory of their special day long after the dress has been put away, or can be given as a perfect thank you gift to bridesmaids.
The jewellery is crafted from 100% recycled silver (waste from both the silver trade and other industrial uses) rather than silver that is newly mined and Susannah runs an ‘eco’ studio, making environmentally clean choices about working practices, packaging and materials.
'When I launched Susannah Brookes Sustainable Jewellery, I was keen to ensure that I made environmentally and ethically sound choices in all parts of my business – not just in the materials I use to craft the pieces, but also in the methods I use and in my broader decisions about what I do. We all have a part to play in protecting the environment, however small each single contribution.
As well as using environmentally-kind materials, I am also trying to address some wider sustainable development goals in my business. For me this means being ethically responsible about things like water usage, single-use plastic and energy consumption. It also means making decisions that champion other small businesses, contribute to the local community, and support charitable enterprise.' Susannah
