Hi,

Are you looking for a combination of those materials or casting grain for each one? To my knowledge no supplier of jewelry materials has certified their base metals, such as copper and zinc (basic components of brass) for recycled content. Those certifications have only been sought out for silver, gold, platinum and palladium. If you have a business license, Hoover and Strong is a good source. If you don't have a business license you can order from Rio Grande - consider calling Rio Grande for specific recycling information on their metals, you might find that they have what you are looking for.

No matter what, always ask your supplier for what you want / expect, that's the only way that the industry will continue to change.

All the best and send an email to mail@ethicalmetalsmiths.org letting us know what you discover.

Best,
Christina Miller

Hi Heather! Here in Milan we are still waiting for the real summer, but already we feel the fragrance, will be certainly a source of new inspiration!
Thank you for your question! "anphibious" is an encounter between some turnips, a shell and fossil sand.

your amphibious piece is gorgeous!

This necklace is called "amphibious"", it's developed from materials that are the fruit of the earth and the sea. 

I like to transform materials that appeal to me more to get them in my jewelry.

What a great group! I realized when I found this group that I will need to load some of my more marketable items as well as my art works. Stay tuned! I work with all sorts of recycled elements and have been for 36 years! I'd love more friends!
