Ethical, simple, beautiful.

As far as ethically conscious labels are concerned, Metal and Dust is doing it right.

The label is known for its minimal take on jewellery design, with pieces made from the highest quality materials, all recycled where possible.

Handcrafting each piece in her Perth studio, designer Steph Brownfield focuses on simple shapes and attention to detail.

The collection spans the usual suspects – earrings, necklaces and bracelets – though we can’t go past the stackable rings in sterling sliver and gold.

To make your bling a little more personal, Metal and Dust also offers a bespoke service. Steph works with her customers, customising pieces with ethically-sourced diamonds and opals, to form jewellery that is unique to you.
