I think the people themselves say it better than I could:
“So what’s it all about? Well, it started through travelling. We always loved to travel. A kaleidoscope of cultures, stories and landscapes made it great to get out of the house, even if it was for a year or two at a time. And from this grew Tales From The Earth. We were clear what we wanted from the start – to create silver jewellery, keepsakes and charms that told stories, like those we encountered on our voyages. Twenty years on, we’re still at it. Travelling. Being inspired. Telling Tales. And people still come to us because they want something beautiful and unusual. Fabulously packaged. For any occasion. If your heart still sings, you’ll love what we do.” Jo Culf and John DeCosta
Tales From The Earth make beautiful jewellery for men, women and children, as well as trinket boxes, cufflinks and christening gifts, all crafted in sterling silver and packaged in gorgeous aqua and bronze boxes or velvety pouches.
Each piece tells a story, written on a little card inside the box.
The company also operate a strict fair trading policy, making sure that working conditions abroad are safe and adequate, that wages are fair, and that no children work for them. They use locally produced raw materials where possible.Back at home, they use minimum packaging, recycle as much as possible, and contribute to a carbon offsetting programme.
Tales from the Earth products are beautifully made and packaged, and any of them make a superb present that will be treasured for a lifetime.
