    An ethical and ecological jewelry dream, the story behind Liv & Lov...

    The name Liv & Lov came from my personal motto, Liv: go for it! follow your dreams and Lov: do so with compassion for others and the environment. Its a sentiment I strive to follow and encourage others to as well!

    With this philosophy, I believe as a jeweler I have a particular responsibility towards where my materials come from and how. Knowing where my metals come from, their extraction methods and their affect on the local community and environment is vital to me. I believe in supporting artisanal and small scale miners (ASM), a group that with current prices has soared to 20-25 million people, with 150 million more indirectly dependent. Very recently independent certification of traceable, ethical ASM gold became available through Fairtrade and Fairmined, soon this will be available in the US. But so far silver is only available as a byproduct of the gold. I hope to change that and expand ethical sourcing to other metals and materials. All jewelry profits go towards this work.

    Developing ethical and ecological silver and materials is my dream and your support allows me to work towards that, thank you!
