She is one of the first licensees worldwide of certified Fairtrade, Fairmined Ecological gold, from which 15% of the bullion price is guaranteed to go towards ensuring a fair wage for the miners as well as funding the development of schools, healthcare, fresh water and mid-wives in the mining dependant villages. No chemicals are used in the extraction of the ore, and no child-labour is involved. Linnie also works in 100% recycled silver and uses ethically and responsibly sourced gemstones with a transparent and traceable supply chain. All pieces are hand made in her London studio. She tries to ensure that the story behind her jewellery is equally as lovely as the jewellery itself.
