I was craving to experiment with new materials after working in fashion and costume design trying to find my way in life. I knew that I wanna work with my hands, learning different handicrafts, and realize this project ethically and sustainably only.
When I moved to Vienna I found a small shop just around the corner from my apartment that provides lots of second-hand tools, materials, and the nicest saleslady who would help me out. For me, it was a signpost. My workshop at home was growing, and I kept on learning how to work with silver. Oni was born.
Sustainability & Ethics
When it comes to materials, I use recycled silver only. Down below, find a list of the certificates my supplier provides for quality and an ethical, social, and environmentally-friendly business. When it comes to pearls or stones, I am using upcycled ones only. I am trying to use as little package as possible to avoid producing more trash again. And I am always hunting for new possibilities to make it better and more sustainable.
