ABOUT MYLETI

Myleti - British Handmade and Sustainable Jewellery

Hi there! I'm Sarah, the face behind Myleti Jewellery and I have a passion for designing and hand making sustainable and eco friendly jewellery for you to treasure.

Background

Having worked in the fashion industry as a high street accessories designer/buyer for over thirteen years, I was starting to become disillusioned by mass production and cheap 'throwaway' jewellery. My dream was to be able to hand make my own quality designs. So at the beginning of 2020 I booked myself on to an introductory silversmith course with the London Jewellery School. I loved it so much, that I continued to learn online and make jewellery at home. Then in May 2020 (in the middle of the Covid lockdown) Myleti was born.

That resulted in me swapping my heels and long daily commutes in fast paced London, for wellies and dog walks in a small village in the Northamptonshire countryside. Where I work full time in my studio running my handmade business. 

Meaning behind the name

'Myleti' means 'To love' in Lithuanian. I wanted to incorporate part of my heritage in to my brand (my Grandad on my Dad's side of the family was Lithuanian) and 'to love' seemed to be the perfect fit.  - "Jewellery to gift to the ones you love".

Eco Practices and Sustainability

Being as eco friendly as possible is really important to me. I have chosen to work with as much eco sterling silver as I possibly can and I work a lot with silver clay. Silver clay is made from fine silver that is recycled from a range of sources and once fired becomes sterling silver, so it is extremely sustainable. I also ensure that any gemstones and beads I buy are ethically sourced from only specialist small independent businesses.

All of my materials are purchased from British businesses which helps to reduce my carbon footprint. 

I only make pieces in very small batches so that I am never sitting on a lot of stock and all scraps of silver left over from projects are saved and melted down to re-use again, so I have very minimal waste as a business.

Finally all of my packaging is also all recycled or recyclable. No plastics are used at all.

Buying from handmade and sustainable brands, means you are helping to make a positive change in the fashion industry.

Inspiration and design

I take design inspiration from everywhere including; textures and patterns from nature, historic and vintage jewellery, architecture, art and design exhibitions, - the list goes on.

I would say the overall brand look of Myleti has 'an organic influence combined with a nostalgic dash of vintage inspiration'.

As Myleti jewellery is handmade by myself, each piece has had a lot of care and love put in to it and does not have that 'mass produced' perfect look, but this is what makes it feel real and completely unique with it's own character.

 

Thank you so much for visiting Myleti Jewellery and please do get in touch if you have any questions or just want to say 'hi'.
