ONE OF A KIND.
By Livvy Lou sells one of a kind affordable beaded and sterling 925 silver jewellery.
Constellations London is a small UK-based business designing affordable luxury gold jewellery, which gives back to charity with every purchase. The majority of their pieces are 18ct gold vermeil - this means that a thicker layer of gold plating is bonded to 925 Sterling Silver. All of their jewellery is classic and timeless, perfect for gifting.
Their tag line ‘Look Good, Do Good’ speaks of both their sustainability efforts and the fact that they give back in partnership with When You Wish Upon A Star UK, helping to fulfil the dreams of children living with a life-threatening illness.

HANDCRAFTED JEWELLERY & VINTAGE FASHION.
Sister run business Daisy Lily focuses on handcrafted unique jewellery, specialising in fresh water pearls and gold-plated pieces. Their new venture, DL Vintage focuses on re-selling handpicked vintage pieces, recycling the old to fit with the current for a more sustainable approach to trend fashion. All pieces from the ‘Friendship Bracelet’ collection is dedicate to certain charities and 50-100% of their profits are donated to them. Daisy Lily believes businesses should have a big part in helping the climate crisis, therefore the Green Earth bracelet is dedicated to the Rainforest Alliance charity. An international non-profit organisation working at building an alliance to protect rainforests, improve the livelihoods of farmers and forest communities, promote their human rights and help them adapt to the climate crisis.

Creating completely unique pieces of seaglass jewellery, all of their collections are sustainable too - from recycled silver wire to reusable packaging. Every piece is made to order reducing the amount of waste created with mass production.
