Sustainable fashion in the jewelry industry
Mining for gold, silver, diamonds, gemstones, and other metals can result in water pollution, greenhouse gas emission, and soil erosion.
Dr. Doug Guthrie, dean of International Business and Management at the George Washington University School of Business, and a team of researchers compiled a report in 2010, titled “The Environmental Impact of Mining Precious Metals and Gemstones: The Case for Putting Jewelry Back Into Circulation.”
Guthrie explored the use of toxic chemicals in mining. Cyanide is used to separate gold from ore, for example. His report states that 20 tons of waste are produced for every ounce of gold. An average large-scale gold mine uses 1,900 tons of cyanide annually. Arsenic and other chemicals are used in mining other materials.
The waste can contaminate bodies of water, soil, and the air around mines, though the cyanide solution is used in a low concentration.
Two E Minus focuses on eco-friendly jewelry, handcrafted and unique artistic pieces.
The design mission is to make artistic elegence that celebrate the feminine figure. The design process starts with us thinking about what we really want to keep right now. We grow the most beautiful and sustainable metal possible to bring those designs to life.
TWO E MINUS focused on the balance between nature and industrial. Aiming to capture the new perceptions through creative technology and create a sustainable and aesthetic methodology, TWO E MINUS transit the beauty and explore the philosophy from nature and mind. Everything in our world exists in its own borderless continuity of life. Everything that exists has never gone, they switch forms, from fragile to tenacious, brief to eternity.
TWO E MINUS create a sustainable and aesthetic methodology to convert industrial leftover and waste into art and jewelry. Every piece of our art and jewelry is unique, and the only one in the world contains the beauty and power of existing and reincarnation.
The power that is reborn in the ruins, the strength shown in the natural or organic combination, is like the earth, like hope, continuing temperature and balance. We instinctively explore more sustainable materials and techniques in the creative process. In the combination of natural or organic species, seek the balance of beauty, texture, sustainability, and gentleness.
In our eyes, everything that every existent has its own beauty. The circle of life is a reincarnation, nothing should be gone, they have just changed a form and be there in a different way.
