Unearthed Jewellery offers you upcycled jewellery that grounds you in its history and connects you to the earth. Unearthed pottery shards, sea glass or iron slag are upcycled into one-of-a-kind, environmentally-conscious sterling silver or gold-filled jewellery, connecting you to the land and story of where the shard came from.
Does jewellery hold a deeper, sentimental connection for you? Do you love finding one-of-a-kind jewellery that you know no one else owns? Do you love jewellery with a story? Pottery shards can be found everywhere in the UK.... walking along the canal, down the street, in your garden, along the beach....
Finding these fragments of broken pottery evokes a strong sense of curiosity about the history of the UK Pottery industry, raising many questions....how did it get here, who made the pottery, where was it made, what were their lives like, who were the intended users of the completed piece? The fragments also demonstrate the significance of the ceramic industry of the UK, its tragic decline and the glimmer of its resurrection in recent years.
Using these found shards of pottery, I create for you, one-of-a-kind, earth-friendly, jewellery with its own story. When you purchase a piece of Unearthed Jewellery, it comes with a copy of the provenance I have been able to uncover from the description.....who made it, where it was made, the pattern name, where it was found, how it likely got there, and how it has been made into a one-of-a-kind piece of jewellery for you to wear. In some cases, we may know a lot about a piece, in others, we know very little.
Unearthed also gives you the chance to feel connected to the planet. Re-using and upcycling unearthed pottery shards, low-carbon-footprint, UK-sourced materials and supplies, and hand-made upcycled, re-purposed packaging materials, purchasing a piece of Unearthed Jewellery means you are doing a little something to reduce the toxins and waste on our planet.
