Navigating the current culture of consumption within art and design consciously and responsibly is challenging. With a lack of transparency being some brands biggest assets - other brands can use visibility and transparency to their advantage.
My intentions for my brand Rascal Mueller are to create jewellery that embodied and elevated the rawness of the minerals and materials I am using. While doing this, it would not be responsible to exploit this natural beauty by turning a blind eye to other layers of unethical creation. I have to work in a way that was holistically responsible - all facets of sustainability are considered.
