Hi, I’m Nicole

Nicole, Tea House Jewelry

We make choices everyday about what to buy and consume, and if you are like me you look at the bigger picture of the impact your choices will have on the environment. I started making jewelry because I love to create, I have always been a maker as far back as I can remember. When I first started out, I did not have the environmental impact in mind, I was still learning and trying to find my voice.

Once I got established, I realized that what I was doing could have a negative impact on the environment. I started to look at my materials and processes from that standpoint and I learned that it wasn’t all that good for the planet. I decided then and there that it would be my mission to transform my jewelry making one step at a time into an eco-conscious process that creates less waste, uses fewer resources and has less impact on the environment.

Today I am on that journey to create more eco-friendly jewelry so that there are better choices available for people who care about their impact on the environment. My first step was to outline the use of recycled materials in my jewelry. Each item description details the use of 100% recycled silver in its content. I have also switched to eco-friendly packaging and shipping materials as well as some other processes and items. There is still more to do and I am excited about the changes yet to come.
