JEWELLERY MADE FROM RECYCLED MATERIALS
Thank you for being here – my name is Anna and I’m a jeweller in Zug, Switzerland, making small series and bespoke jewellery from recycled materials.
You can find your favourite piece of jewellery made of recycled gold, silver or platinum in my shop or let me redesign your old jewellery so that you can wear it again. I also reuse your own diamonds, stones or pearls in a new personalised piece of jewellery. I’m convinced that you will wear your jewellery longer if it is made with high quality in a timeless design chosen by you and the longer you wear your jewellery, the more sustainable it becomes. Have fun browsing!

AN EXAMPLE OF A REDESIGN
The pictures below, show some of the steps involved in making a commissioned ring: A model made in brass for my customer to review, removing the diamonds from the old gold jewellery brought by my customer, melting the old gold jewellery, making the thread for the ring shank, bending the shank and soldering it together to make one eternal loop, soldering the settings to the shank.
My customer brought me her parents’ wedding rings and three diamonds from her maternal grandmother. Together we decided on the swirly design that you see on the pictures. This design, being elegant and robust at the same time will ensure that my customer can carry the ring for many years to come making it sustainable, not just because of the recycled materials, but also because of the longevity of the design.
