"I’ve worked hard over the past few years to ensure that all of my designs are sourced and made in an ethical and sustainable manner."
Sourced with Meaning
We cast entirely in recycled gold and silver and are happy to offer any design specially made in Fairtrade gold. We only use small workshops and individual makers to produce my work with a strong focus on maker’s who are linked to the Goldsmiths Centre.

We use a small chain of diamond dealers to source our stones. Our diamonds are conflict free and Kimberley Process at a minimum. We also use Canadian diamonds and purchase larger coloured stones from ethical suppliers where appropriate. For our Certified stones we buy diamonds certified by GIA, AGS or IGR-Global, the most respected independent diamond grading laboratories. Our favourite route to sustainability is to re-purpose materials - Flora loves remodelling old pieces to re-use the metal and stones and give them a fresh design and an exciting new lease of life.
Crafted with Meaning
We believe in slow fashion and produce one of a kind or small edition designs from our studio. Flora still crafts many designs and oversees every piece. Our jewellery is made using the traditional skills of hand wax carving, stone cutting and setting, alongside innovative contemporary technology. Our carved gems are hand cut by master craftsmen in the UK using traditional techniques. All of our designs feature UK assay marks in accordance with the Hallmarking Act 1973.
Tailored with Meaning
To preserve quality and craftsmanship, many of our pieces are made to order specifically for you. This means we can customise our designs to your requests. Please let us know if you would like us to quote for an alternative stone, metal or tailored feature: firstname.lastname@example.org. When a piece is not in stock or needs bespoke adjustments it will be made to order. We will notify you of the delivery time on receipt of your order.
