‘I immersed myself in the history of jewellery, going back to the source of adornment and its magical meanings. As a new designer out of Central Saint Martins, the notion of sustainability is at the centre of my thoughts’
The thirteen-piece collection is created solely from Fairtrade Silver, 14k and 18k Fairtrade Gold, that has been sourced from the Sotrami Fairtrade certified mine in Southern Peru. The pieces – primal is character – are an innovative interpretation of mythology. Designed to act as amulets that empower the wearer through their compelling symbolic qualities and deep sense of history.
Greg Valerio MBE, Founder of Valerio, notes:
‘There is no doubt in my mind the future of designer jewellery rest in the hands of ethically uncompromising young designers. For to long the jewellery consumer has been sold an ethically shallow product. I want to see a generation of new designers break free from the pallid luxury convention established by the European heritage brands. The future of jewellery is in the hands of fresh brave designers like Chloe, who rightly put human rights and environmental protection at the heart of the design journey‘.
