🌴 #6 QUESTIONS TO ASK AN ETHICAL JEWELLERY BRAND BEFORE HANDING OVER YOUR MONNIES 💸

Welcome back  Tiger!!

What could I possibly be up to in the studio that I gotta look like that dude from The Shining….wouldn’t you like to know. ⛏️ …..⁠
Okay….I’m hand-painting + varnishing wooden beads. It’s a process which takes me 4 days to complete. It aint easy but I do it to assure customers who shop for my earrings, the process in which my jewelleru is made- is ethical. ⁠And if you’re an ethical shopper- that kinda info is an absolute must.⁠

With subscribers who receive my weekly 🌴TUT newsletter, ( JOIN UP to the mailing list here ) I’ve talked about my stressful experiences with gaining trustworthy info from bead suppliers on Etsy in regards to the #sustainability of their natural wooden beads. ⁠

In one-word AGONY. I finally gave up pulling my fucking hair out.😩😧 this instead. So what you see here is me solving the problem ma damn self!!⁠
