Supporting Black Lives Matter and Black Metalsmiths

Supporting Black Lives Matter and Black Metalsmiths

We are a values-based business. When you wear our work, we want you to feel beautiful and also know you are doing good. We are committed to an ethical production process and supply chain as well as working towards a more equitable world. We do our own metalwork in our studio just north of San Francisco. We work with chains and components made in the US. Our bronze, sterling and gold components are made from recycled metals. Our metal supplier is a member of the Responsible Jewellery Council. We choose to work with suppliers who support Black Lives Matter and a diverse jewelry industry, including Rio Grande and Otto Frei.

The world needs more entrepreneurs, makers and leaders who are women and people of color. It is our goal to help cultivate this next generation of makers and artisan entrepreneurs by helping young people gain skills and confidence in technology, collaboration and real-world problem-solving. We donate a portion of our profits to the Crucible an organization in Oakland, California that empowers young working artists through hands-on creative education. We also donate to We Wield the Hammer, a hands-on training program for women of African descent in Oakland and Dakar.
