Rebecca Oxenham jewellery is made using a mix of contemporary and traditional silversmith techniques. We use recycled silver, ethically sourced gemstones and all items are designed to last a lifetime. This is in contrast to jewellery that relies on cheap labour and harmful metal mining methods where surface soil is often removed and chemicals used. This causes a negative impact on the area’s biodiversity. There is too much cheap, imported jewellery available that is made using non precious metals, often badly made, worn only a few times and then thrown away!
Rebecca works out of her studio at the end of her garden in Hampshire, England. The jewellery created is inspired by her passion for nature and she is committed to supporting biodiversity and protecting the environment. She uses recycled materials such as eco-silver and eco-gold in her pieces. The presentation boxes used are FSC® certified. The glue, paper and cardboard used in the production of the jewellery boxes, are all 100% eco-friendly. The tissue paper and postal boxes are also eco-friendly, being made from recycled materials. The gift wrapping service uses eco-friendly paper and the 'satin' ribbon used is manufactured in the UK from 100% recycled plastic bottles.
Rebecca Oxenham jewellery is partnered with One Tree Planted to plant a tree for every item of jewellery and home kit sold. Every tree makes a positive impact for nature, wildlife, and people. Trees clean our air and water, create habitats for biodiversity, contribute to our health and well-being, and create jobs for social impact. see www.onetreeplanted.org
