Emma Barnes created Wild Fawn in January 2015 when her love for making and drawing transformed into the love of working with silver and gold to make timeless jewellery that can be enjoyed every day. Each piece of jewellery is made by hand in her London studio, which is important to Emma because it means that there has been no exploitation of workers or unnecessary C02 emissions from transport to bring you Wild Fawn Jewellery.
With a background in Anthropology, Emma knows that it's incredibly important to learn about where and how her materials are sourced and how people and cultures can be negatively affected by mining silver and gold. This is why Emma uses recycled silver and Fairtrade gold to make her jewellery so it can be made and worn with a clean conscience. Emma is a registered Fairtrade gold user which means that the gold she uses to make each piece of jewellery is produced fairly and transparently. Buying Fairtrade gold helps to build miners futures by investing in social projects such as new schools and healthcare, and most importantly, to make their own way to prosperity.
Emma's mission is to spread the word about eco-friendly, ethical jewellery that doesn't need to
cost the earth.
