Artist Statement

What is it like to be a gold miner? What is it like to be a gold miner in a Fairmined-certified gold mine? This goldsmith is curious about the conditions of gold mining (human rights, labor and environmental) and also, what everyday life is like. What does the countryside look like, surrounding the gold mines? I requested photos and information about some Fairmined mining sites; the plants and flowers near the mines led to the Flora Collection.

Please ask where your gold is from, how you can rely on any assertions made and the conditions under which it was mined, traded, processed and so on! As wise people have observed, we cannot improve what we cannot measure. A transparent gold supply chain - for jewelry as well as for all uses - will allow us to improve conditions for people and planet.
