We’re pretty excited about the new jewellery lines we’re carrying in the shop. There’s something very personal about jewellery and the pieces from Spirit of Vera and Mata Traders are all beautiful, unique and ethically made. In other words, they’re the perfect fit for our Grey Rock customers and the perfect gift for that special someone on your shopping list.
Mata Traders is a design driven, fair trade fashion brand whose mission is to “fashion a better world”. Their jewellery is colourful, vibrant and we love the fun statement their pieces add to any outfit. It’s all made by artisans in India and Nepal and provides a stable source of income for families in economically disadvantaged communities. Mata Traders partners with fair trade organizations that train and employ hundreds of artisans, with a focus on gender equality and empowering women. We think that makes their jewellery that much more special and we’re proud to support such a great socially conscious company!
Here are a few photos of our Mata Traders jewellery:
Every piece of the Spirit of Vera line is created by designer Vera Audette in Toronto using reclaimed sterling silver. She started her business in 2014 after learning about silver sourcing while travelling abroad. She uses classic shapes to make unique jewellery-- the kind you wear every day and the kind that becomes part of your signature style.
