The founder of fashion jewellery brand Lee Renee launched a new ethical sister brand called No 13 earlier this year. No 13 is a brand based on the values of social responsibility, excellence, integrity and sustainability.
As such, all pieces have been crafted from recycled silver and eco-friendly, recycled packaging. Inspired by nature and indigenous artisans who live in some of the remotest and endangered places on the planet, founder Lee Preston wanted to work alongside Sami artisans who inhabit the Arctic Circles to bring consumers original and contemporary designs.
As such, Sami offers a modern twist on ancient styles. Pieces feature naturally shed reindeer antlers, hand carved into unique cabochon stones.
As the Sami collection collaborates with an indigenous culture that is heavily affected by people’s actions on the planet, a percentage of all profits from No 13’s debut range are donated to the National Wildlife Federation.
