Our Values: Ethics, Sustainability, & Transparency
The practices and footprint of a jewerly business are just as important as the design and craftsmanship. We choose to run our business, create our jewerly, and source our materials with people and the environment in the foreground. First, we do that in house, with our systems, procedures, and choices. Next, we build relationships with ethically empowered suppliers to support sustainable and ethical practices. Finally, we transparently share and deliver that to YOU, our customers, who care about the who-what-where-why-and-how impact, of the products you choose to have in your daily lives.
Each Jen Leddy Studios piece of jewelry is hand-crafted using traditional goldsmithing techniques from 100% SCS certified recycled metals. 95% of our collection is entriely hand-fabricated directly from metal, and the other 5% is cast (from from originally hand-fabricated samples), and finished by hand.
We diligently recycle clean scraps of metal in house by pouring ingots and rolling, drawing, or forging stock and wire into the dimensions we require. That's recycling X2! All other metal scraps and filings, benchsweeps and floorsweeps, we have refined through our trusted Green SCS certified refiner.
In addition, through our Custom process, we recycle our customer provided metal when applicable and suitable.
