About Cork...

Cork is a water-resistant, organic material, and has been used for centuries. Harvested from the Cork Oak tree, forests of these trees are combating habitat destruction for many animals in southern Europe. 

Commonly known as Vegan leather, it is very hard wearing, easily recyclable, biodegradable and requires no chemicals or pollutants in the production process. 

As well as having a positive impact on the environment, cork cord is also very comfortable, breathable and each piece has a unique grain making it a great addition to any style piece. Portuguese laws protect the harvest of Cork, limiting it to once every 9 years. This doesn't usually take place until the tree is around 25 years old. It takes around 50 years from planting for cork trees to produce high quality material.

 

About the Silver...

Hallmarks can be found on the ear wires.

The sterling silver wire I use is reclaimed from medical and industrial machinery then given a new lease of life as a long lasting piece of unique wearable art, making it the perfect accompaniment for the stunning, hand picked Baltic Amber from Lithuania.

About the artist...

I'm Victoria, I live in the beautiful coastal paradise of Vancouver Island, where I find inspiration all around me. My designs are inspired by the beauty of the forests, rolling ocean waves and coastal paths I call home. 

Being an eco-friendly and cruelty free business is very important to me. All of my products are vegan friendly and Earth Friendly. I love supporting small, local and ethical businesses.

This item can be gift wrapped and include a hand written personalized message as well as a certificate of authenticity from the designer (all packaging, cards and certificate paper are made from recycled paper and are reusable/recyclable)

Let me know upon checkout and I will be happy to personalize your gift to your specifications.
