Emerging jewellery designer Kassandra Lauren Gordon will present a Fairtrade gold extension to her Fly Me to Jupiter collection for the first time at International Jewellery London in September.
The Hackney-based designer decided to act of her belief that “all enterprise should be social enterprise” by committing herself to Fairtrade and recycled precious materials wherever available.
Gordon, who is a registered Fairtrade goldsmith, said: “It’s important for me to align my business with my beliefs, even though it’s hard. I don’t think I’m alone in this. I think my generation in general believes that ethical matters should be core considerations in business. It doesn’t make me better than anyone else but it does make me more authentic to myself.”
You can find Kassandra Lauren Gordon int the New Designers Area at International Jewellery London in September, located on Stand Q90 within the Design Gallery on the Gallery Level.
