I was inspired by Elvis and Kresse and their amazing work to divert firehouse from landfill, and thought: is there something I can do to swerve waste from Landfill. That’s when I discovered Tshirt yarn! Reclaimed from surplus, off cuts and over production in factories throughout Europe, Tshirt yarn is the perfect material for chunky statement jewellery that doesn’t cost the earth. So much useable material is left over from fast fashion production, and accounts for so much landfill waste, turning it into yarn provides a brilliant solution. I also use vintage and preloved beads & model railway figures.
In 2018 I started an amazing collaboration with Wyatt and Jack to use off cuts from their recycled bouncy castle, inflatables & deckchair bag production. Creating colourful jewellery and taking them a step closer to zero waste.
I believe everyone can make a difference, no matter how small.
