Days of August - Marie-Pier Labelle

Days of August Designer Profile for Sarah Rothe Contemporary Jewellery 

When I started Days of August, I wanted to make jewellery pieces that lasted both structurally and aesthetically. I did not want it to be part of a throw-away culture. I want my work to have the potential to be worn every single day for decades, and still be looking as good as new. I want my pieces to last long enough to be treasured, and eventually become heirlooms. 

Sustainability is very important to me, which is why I use industrial stainless steel as my primary material. It is not easy to work with, but it is strong and durable, and best of all, it’s reclaimed.

Every piece is handmade with a considered attention to detail, and an ecological mindset. I am happy to say that responsible business practices, along with local sourcing and handmade production methods has made Days of August a carbon neutral business.
