With her we learn how she sources ethical gemstones and fair trade gold, we cover the key question: “why is sustainable jewelry important?”, discuss the growth of this industry plus the places there’s still room for improvement. Sonja also shares the eco-conscious ways in which she recycles old jewelry pieces. She does so with love and clear intentions to transmute family history and stories into new, custom designed recycled jewelry pieces. Her pieces promote the wellbeing of her clients with her bespoke Recycle Your Love jewelry recycling service.
