The average person generates over 4 pounds of trash every day and about 1.5 tons of solid waste per year. While 75% of this waste is recyclable, we only recycle 30% of it. Brazilian jewelry brand, Rust Miner is out to change that.
Founder Raphael Fagiolo turns trash into treasure creating hand made jewelry from discarded materials such as bike parts, leather scraps and metals mined from a variety of origins.
It all began when he and his partner were searching for jewelry that fit their own aesthetic—something rustic, unique and different. It was by chance that he began to see the possibility of making accessories from discarded materials.
“When we stop to think about it, we realize that each piece has a different emotion,” explains Fagiolo. “Every material carries it’s own story—the journeys of the bicycle chain, the watches that have carried lives, told in minutes. It is all very poetic and inspiring.”
For Fagiolo, this development was the beginning of a journey he hadn’t anticipated. “Being a jewelry designer has taught us that we can contribute to the beauty of people’s lives and at the same time consciously make them rethink how we discard and consume.”
Apart from being stand out pieces on their own, a Rust Miner piece takes virtually nothing from the environment and very little “energy” to create. It’s a win for style and a win for the world. RustMiner.com— ANASTASIA RUBIN
