MATERIALS

Recycled Metal

All Made Line jewelry is made with certified recycled metal.

This means that the metal has been taken from a previously owned piece of jewelry (or even electronics and dental work!) rather than from newly mined metal. After the metal has been properly melted down, “cleaned” to take out any impurities, and re-alloyed at the refiner, the metal is ready to be made into something new!

The quality and value of recycled metal is exactly the same as newly mined metal, but using recycled metal is a great way to ensure that you aren’t supporting any bad mining practices that could possibly have many social and environmental consequences.

Traceable Gemstones

I only work with gemstones that are natural and have some form of traceability.

I try to find as much information as possible about the stones to guarantee that they are ethically sourced. Gathering information on gemstones is extremely difficult (the stones go through so many different hands after being mined that it has not yet become an industry standard to track them), however I try to find out as much information as possible about it’s journey from mine to market. If possible I try to find the country of origin, specific mining site, trading information, and where the stone was cut.

If I’m unable to find sufficient information, I won’t use the stone. I proudly share all stone origin information whenever possible!

MADE LINE VALUES

My personal values have always been at the heart of what I do and how I run my business. As a small company, I am not perfect and I do not have all the answers, but I am constantly striving to be better. I highly value and believe in…

HONESTY // INTEGRITY // RESPONSIBILITY // COMPASSION // COURAGE // CURIOSITY

Honesty:

being open and transparent with everyone I work with, including everyone in the supply chain, material vendors, customers, and everyone in between. Even being honest with myself when I’m wrong or when I know I can improve.

Integrity:

using my values as guiding principles for all business decisions and only working with people that share my values, follow through with their intentions, and are open to talking in detail about their work.

Responsibility:

having respect for the materials I use and the earth that the materials come from. I believe it is important to clean up after myself and continuously learn how to make better decisions and to encourage positive change.

Compassion:

having genuine respect for everyone I work with, especially the people that are in the supply chain and directly affected by the sourcing and manufacturing of the materials I use. I truly believe that compassion is the main source of connection and when this is combined with action, it can create huge positive change.

Courage:

practicing courage bit by bit, and eventually creating a confidence in your authentic self. Being bold, strong, and risk taking, while still remaining humble.

Curiosity:

staying motivated to grow, learn, make better decisions, and embrace change.
