German-born artist and jeweller Ute Decker puts equal importance on the provenance of her materials as the sculptural beauty of her finished creations. Working with the world's first Fairtrade gold, an Ute Decker piece can be traced all the way from alluvial plain to jewellery box. The amazing work of the artisan miners of Oro Verde in the Choco Bioregion of Columbia - the source of Ute's Fairtrade gold - ensures that the virgin tropical rainforest is mined in a sustainable and ecologically sound way, thereby preserving it for future generations. She pays a 15% Fairtrade premium for her gold, which is guaranteed to go directly to investing in and directly benefitting the community. This limited-edition, handcrafted PURE minimalist arm piece consists of a single, never-ending loop of sand-textured Fairtrade gold, overlapping in beautifully formed curves that weave their way organically around the arm. Ute's empowering jewellery is not just striking in its design but also rich in social history, which is part of her DNA as a jeweller, and her creations would be just as at home in an art gallery as they are being worn as an accessory.
