S L P Jewelry Design uses recycled .925 sterling silver, and 14k, 18k, and 22k gold. Metals are smelted in the studio or purchased from a 100 year old eco-friendly refinery in the US.
Diamonds are conflict free from Canada, and South Africa.
We do not use any leather products.
None of SLP's creations are cast pieces. All are hand crafted in the studio. Each item is cut from the raw material, and formed by hand as required. Maker's marks, and texture from hammering are the result of the fabrication process. Sofia’s design esthetic is perfectly imperfect favoring raw and oxidized finishes. No two pieces are exactly alike given the hand-crafted nature. Every "flaw" is intentional, and gives each piece it's unique one-of-a-kind beauty.
