About

Sustainable, customizable and unique works of wearable art

I named my brand, Duromina, after my favourite blend of coffee. My favourite way to start my morning is with the smell of freshly ground coffee as I slowly brew pour-over. There's something about incorporating a moment into my morning routine to slow down and appreciate the little things that really inspired me to create the items you will find in this shop.

I started this venture by creating pieces for myself. Those pieces captured the attention of my friends who started asking me for custom work. By word of mouth, and thanks to the words of encouragement from friends and family, I decided to start sharing my creations with the Etsy marketplace.

I strive to make jewellery and accessories that are as sustainable and ethical as possible. I scour through thrift stores, scrap fabric bins and odds-and-ends baskets at local jewellery suppliers. Any animal-based supplies are humanely and lawfully sourced from Prehistoria, a free natural history museum that collects discards from local veterinarians, farms, zoos and first nations communities. Wherever possible, I will avoid purchasing new polyester and synthetic materials. This is why I personally prefer ethically sourced or used leather and suede to synthetic alternatives.

Every piece I sell in my shop was handmade by me in my own home. You can support my work with a clean conscious and piece of mind!
