What does it mean to be an Ethical Metalsmiths’ Recommended Designer?
Coming soon in 2020
Our Designer Members place great emphasis and effort on sustainability in their jewelry practice. They focus on responsible sourcing of materials (metals, gemstones, and findings), they are educated on best studio practices, they take steps to reduce their environmental impact, and they consider how their actions affect others, in and out of the studio.
Starting in 2020, Ethical Metalsmiths Designer Members will have the option to take our Designer Self Assessment, an educational and transparency tool to help jewelers hone their practices even farther and share their efforts publicly. Individual results will be linked to the gemstone member icon on their designer page.
