Before embarking on working as an ethical jeweller, Tepla specialised in studio jewellery across a wide variety of techniques and mediums. Today she likes the challenge of working with the finest eco-friendly materials to realize limited editions and one-of-a-kind concepts. Tepla produces bodies of work exploring her fascination with the world and concerns the society faces today.

Alarmed by crassness of commercialism and an over producing society, concerned for the environment, Tepla believes education and inspiration are key to motivate people and businesses to act and adopt a greater sense of responsibility towards our planet.

Sandra is passionate about slow and thoughtful jewellery production. Using traditional techniques to give value and meaning to the product without the social and environmental cost, she is looking for better alternatives and hoping to influence industry and educate customer.

Helping to promote recycling-oriented society, she is exclusively employing eco-friendly materials and methods.

Tepla recognises social responsibility is essential in today’s world.Vegan of 16 years, she has set a strict supply chain and her work is now PETA Approved Vegan.
