For me, responsibility is very much about designing a piece of jewellery that is well-balanced with respect for the craft techniques used in creating it. The customer should be able to use their jewellery through many years, of course with wear and tear in mind, if you don’t give the piece a break now and then, as jewelleries are utility items that require you to wear them with care.
The goal is to create jewellery that you can use throughout your life and that can be passed down. It requires really good craftsmanship and respect for the design process.
For me, it is important to make an effort to design jewellery with a long lifespan and by that it is easier to avoid unnecessary overproduction, which I see as one of the major climate challenges the earth is facing.
It must be a piece of jewellery, you can take out of your jewellery box again after a long time without it having lost its color, but is so well-designed that it is a voice from the period in which it was designed. That is good design and craftsmanship for me.
