We’re so into these mini hoops because they represent another little step forwards in our conscious effort to produce sustainable jewellery.

The main body of the hoop is a sprue, which is a by-product of the casting process. A sprue is the little passage that liquid metal is directed through when jewellery pieces are cast. This component is removed from the main object & tends to be scrapped along with other metal off-cuts & remnants.

We happen to that think each sprue has a beauty which we wanted to celebrate, so we’ve created these individual little hoops.

We are so happy to shine a little light on these otherwise cast-aside elements & believe that they are worth keeping and renewing.

The finer details ~

Each hoop is made on an individual basis and is determined by both the size of the original object & the resulting sprue shape, so no two will ever be exactly the same - a quality that we absolutely love.

When you order a pair of these hoops, they will naturally be slightly mismatched as we let the shape & size of the sprue lead the process.
