As a conscious jewellery company, we have always been extremely proud to handcraft our pieces in our in house studio using predominantly locally sourced materials. With the growth of our business over the last couple of years, our production demand has expanded beyond the capabilities of our in house team. The location of our studio has limited how many skilled, qualified jewellers we have been able to employ, which has, in turn, led us to reaching this production capacity.
In order to maintain reasonable manufacturing windows for our pieces, which all remain made to order, we have had to adapt and expand our vision for conscious production, seeking out like minded partners to contribute to the timely manufacture of our pieces. Responsible practise, ethical sourcing of materials and clear communication remain our top priority, and something we will never compromise on. To this end, we are proud to provide transparency around where each of our pieces is produced, with the majority still being crafted in house by our team of jewellers. All bespoke and One of a Kind pieces are and always will be handcrafted by our master jewellers in Sydney.
As it stands (February 2021*), currently 92% of our online collection pieces are manufactured in Sydney, with 81% of these made in house, 3% are manufactured in New Zealand, and 5% are manufactured overseas. 100% of bespoke and One of a Kind pieces are made in Sydney.
Our goal is to eliminate overseas production within the next six months, with a planned central expansion which is intended to facilitate more local manufacturing jewellers.

One of the greatest challenges we have faced over recent years, has been facilitating growth while maintaining our core values, and remaining aligned with our brand's ethos. In five years, we have gone from a single person team (Natalie), to a team of over thirty like-minded individuals, who share our vision and passion and who work hard every day towards this common goal.
