From raw Fairtrade Silver grain, with love, we have beautifully sculpted a Limited Edition Collection. That showcases organic forms inspired by land and sea…

“The Demons of Change” collection, inspired by the very talented Ben Howard’s record ‘Keep your head up’, provokes personal thought on change; the fear of change, the want for change and the need for change. Just like each piece in this stunning collection it is unique to the individual.

The collection includes a selection of both statement and delicate pieces.

The silver is mined in Sotrami, an artisanal mine situated in the Andes. The mine is 2,450m above sea level and 60 miles away from the nearest town.

Being Fairtrade it is essential the miners are given a fair price for their produce. They also receive a 10% premium which goes straight to the community; helping to support primary schools with new computers, enabling improvements to the medical clinic, and the installation of an emergency dental facility.
