I believe in treading lightly on the earth and so all items will be shipped in a recycled/re-used mailer.
Some notes about the materials I use:
All silver jewelry is made using solid sterling silver or fine silver.
Fine silver (also known as Thai silver) components are made by the Karen Hill Tribe in northern Thailand using traditional tribal methods passed down from generation to generation. Called fine silver, the silver content is typically 95-99%, even higher than sterling (92.5%).
Gold jewelry is either gold fill or gold vermeil:
Gold fill is made by fusing a layer of 14 karat gold to a supporting metal. This produces a permanent bond and the thickness of the gold is at least one hundred times thicker than that of gold plate. In fact a gold filled item must contain 1/20th of its weight in gold. Like solid gold, filled jewelry is tarnish-resistant and safe for most people with sensitive skin. It will not flake or peel and will last for years.
Gold vermeil is 14-24 karat gold layered over sterling silver.
