Jewellery studio in Riga - FABLED SILVER
Sustainability and protecting Nature is one of the most important topics for me as a jeweller. Most often, people buy jewellery to bring joy to themselves and their loved ones - in daily life as a sign of attention, on holidays as a gift, in significant moments as a symbol or amulet. Jewellery has an extremely wide application and meaning, which I think will always be relevant. That is why it is so important to know, as in all other areas of life, where the product you buy comes from and what is the ethical value behind it. The silver jewellery available in an average jewellery store is usually made of "freshly mined" silver, the production of which causes large emissions of mercury into the air, soil and water. When silver is mined by small-scale miners, large amounts of mercury are used during the process, causing enormous harm to health and the environment.
FABLED SILVER jewellery studio in Riga (Šmerļa iela 3, in the premises of the old "Riga film studio") offers an environmentally friendly alternative - recycled silver jewellery, which means that old silver jewellery is completely melted and new jewellery pieces are created from this accessible resource. Is recycled silver the same quality as 'fresh' silver? Definitely! In the process of obtaining silver from used silver objects, its purity is preserved.
By pre-booking a visit to the FABLED SILVER jeweller’s studio, it is possible to meet for a consultation with me, silversmith Marēna Tokareva-Ivanova and to check out my hand-made, recycled silver jewellery "in person". The designs I create include ethically and responsibly obtained semi-precious gemstones and sea glass collected on the beautiful beaches of the Baltic sea. In addition, here you can order a piece of silver jewellery created especially for you using your old silver jewellery, as I want to encourage my customers to use the silver they already have. And, of course, I also offer silver jewellery repair services, because I believe that it is a wonderful opportunity to fall in love again with a dear jewellery piece long forgotten.
