5 Sustainable Jewellery Businesses You Need to Know About

 Snazzy jewellery is what I live for! Okay, that may be a slight exaggeration, but the sentiment still applies. Jewellery is such a fun way of expressing yourself and jazzing up an outfit. To find the most interesting jewellery, I always head either secondhand or to small businesses. Here are some small jewellery businesses owned and run by women I love, and I hope you will too!



1. Pomsha


Pomsha sells a wide variety of earrings, using lots of different materials and styles. They do clip-ons and requests for colours, so you can really customize your order. They have several charity earrings, in support of causes such as Color of Change, supporting Covid protections in Syria, Extinciton Rebellion, Black Vision Collective and Free Palestine. They use clay in several different ways – as tiles to paint images on, to make faces and other shapes, all are super creative and not something I’ve seen used much before. Other products include hook earrings with charms, beads and pom-poms.

2. Felt Fancy

 

Felt Fancy sells a mixture of necklaces, bracelets and earrings, all made out of recycled and responsibility sourced materials. The main feature of Felt Fancy, as you would expect from the name, is their use of felt in most of their designs. Their most pom-pom earrings! These come in several different sizes, a wide range of colours, and some have added beads on the hoops. Each item is made to order, which reduces the amount of wasted materials. 50% of all bracelet profits go to Black Lives Matter UK.

3. WOWE


On their Instagram page, WOWE describe themselves as ‘wearable art’ and I certainly think that description is very apt. The products they make genuinely astound me frequently. They have so many different designs, including every type of fruit you could think of (my personal faves are the pears), flowers, waves, and more! They use minimal and plastic-free packaging. If you like bright colours and snazzy patterns, WOWE is for you!

4. Eclectic Eccentricity


I first found out about Eclectic Eccentricity after Hannah Witton shared a few items she’d been gifted a few years ago. They sell bracelets, earrings, and necklaces, as well as stationary and some homeware (mostly small plant pots). My favourites of theirs are their pressed flower necklaces. I think they’re absolutely beautiful. Eclectic Eccentricitiy has been running for over 10 years and continues to support several charities, particularly Women for Women International. They also avoid all single-use plastic and are zero waste!

5. Foaki


Run by Yossy, all the products sold by Foaki are inspired by her Nigerian heritage. They sell rings, necklaces, earrings, hairclips, and even some net bags! All of their products are absolutely gorgeous, but I have to say that my favourite product of theirs is their Nike earrings. I am obsessed, and kept an eye out for a long time for them to come back in stock so I could get my own pair. I also think many of these would make beautiful and super affordable gifts for friends and family.
