Enjoyed melting down some broken bits of gold chain, single earrings who’d lost their partners decades ago, and old bits of jewellery that had been rattling around in a customer’s jewellery box. The brief was for a pair of large, minimal, with a contemporary tribal twist. I’ve been making a few of these lately and they tick all my ‘sustainable’ boxes! I remember reading somewhere that there’s already enough gold floating around the planet to handle all our requirements, yet we keep digging more and more out of the ground. Not cool.
