Tilly Jewellery focuses on a minimal approach to wearable, great quality, timeless fine silver jewellery.
All pieces from Tilly Jewellery are unique as they are hand made by Matilda herself in her Brisbane studio. There is an ever-growing interest from consumers in product that are hand made, here in Australia. Jewellery evokes emotion and personality, and it is becoming more evident that consumers are looking for unique, less-conventional pieces.
At Tilly Jewellery we source our silver from Australian Company A & E Metals.
A&E Metals manufacture almost all of their mill products at their factory in Marrickville Australia. They use only the highest grade silver and gold possible. The pure silver comes from recycled products. Most of their equipment they use are new, therefore very small amounts of power is used to run manufacturing operation. Manufacturers with older style melting and annealing equipment use very significant power to run.
As almost all their products are bright annealed therefore they do not have to pickle them. Therefore they use very little acid, and what they do use is a very weak form rather than the sulphuric acid solutions that people have traditionally used. They ensure that none ends up in our waterways or landfill. All their cooling water for their melting and annealing processes is recycled and filtered so that they do not use any significant volume of water in production process.
