HOW SACHA BEEE STARTED
Sacha started making tassel earrings as a way to use the beautiful array of coloured threads she found in her granny's sewing box. She then set up a makeshift studio in her university flat with the help of a couple of friends keen to try something new. Today Sacha Beee makes tassel and beaded earrings, beaded bracelets and necklaces as well as embroidered tote bags and up-cycled cotton face pads.
The most important aspects of Sacha Beee are creating conscious pieces to fight fast fashion and showing that beauty and creativity can come from using what we already have. Sustainability is a word used by so many businesses for marketing only. At Sacha Beee sustainability is at the core of the business and we are always looking for new ways to be sustainable. Did you know you can send in your old jewellery and exchange it for a voucher?
What makes Sacha Beee sustainable?
Second-hand beads and threads
Recycled and recyclable packaging
Handmade to order
Aiming for a zero waste business
Organic cotton tote bags
*We try to never buy plastic however occasionally this isn't possible, any single-use plastic is put into eco-bricks and never into landfill
**Eco-silver is recycled sterling silver. We use this in some of our pieces but currently we cannot source it in a thin enough wire to bead with it so new silver/gold plated copper wire is used.
We are not perfect yet, but we are always looking for new ways to be sustainable. If you have any further questions about our materials we are always happy to answer them as transparency is incredibly important to us.
