STORY BEHIND THE JEWELLERY
Did you know that every minute 39,000 coffee pods are made worldwide, while up to 29,000 are dumped in landfill sites? That’s so much aluminium that goes straight into landfill and damages our environment. It’s staggering stats like these that drive my vision for Coffee Pod Creations, to look beyond the take-make-waste model and instead focus on upcycling.
Culturally, the coffee capsule is a symbol of a busy lifestyle. My work represents the opposite: the slowing down and appreciating the little things. It is a conscious move towards a more sustainable jewellery practice.
My designs are not mass produced. Each item is handmade. There are many parts to the process and it takes a long time. However I love what I do and I feel passionately about why I do it.
MEET THE MAKER
Hi, I'm Victoria, an artist, teacher and designer. My first job was working weekends in a jewellery shop, where I made jewellery and taught workshops. I attended University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Geography. This is where my interest in supply chains and sustainability originated. Since then, I have travelled and lived abroad, teaching workshops and selling unique jewellery around the world to those that have a passion for conscious creations and sustainable style.
