What is jewelry made from? 
Sustainable up-cycled jewelry is both good for the earth and good for the artisans.
The leather, metals, fabrics and threads are a combination of locally sourced product, supporting the Nicaraguan economy and up-cycled jewelry, metals, wires and other donated Canadian materials.

Will my PurpleDirt jewelry look the same as in the picture?
Each piece of jewelry is hand made, using up-cycled materials, therefore each piece may vary slightly in colour and pattern.
