About Materials, One Of A Kind Collection
Picture Jasper is a petrified or silicated mud that dripped into gas pockets in molten lava. It became superheated and then solidified forming the unusual banded patterns. The stones are purchased from small, family owed mines. When these areas are no longer being worked, the entire disturbance is recovered, reclaimed, seeded and planted.
Montana Agate is one of the alluvial agates. That means it's found in gravel deposits and along lake-shores, scattered over a huge area along the Yellowstone River and its tributaries. The beauty of this is that the Agates cannot be claimed, mined and dug-out by large mining operations.
I use recycled sterling silver refined by Hoover & Strong. They provide socially and environmentally-responsible products and services. They respect basic human rights around the world and protect the environment by conserving energy and recycling. All precious metals at Hoover & Strong are recycled from the existing metal supply. They do not buy metals from mining companies.
About Materials, Cast Collection
I work with Sierra Pacific Casting, a local, family run company with over 30 years of experience. They are environmentally aware and source their supplies responsibly. They strive to create a shop environment that is safe and comfortable for their employees, as well as environmentally sound. They recycle their metal to the fullest extent they are able, and buy new silver grain that is almost entirely recycled.
