Recycled & repurposed materials.
Recycled sterling silver (Ecosilver) and recycled gold is used whenever and wherever possible. The artisan method of production means the possibility of recycling waste metal as much as possible, employing ethical workshop practices using as little chemicals as possible, lower energy usage and responsible water use practices (recycled/renewable water and energy sources, like solar panels in workshop are part of the brand’s roadmap).
A message from founder, Yuliya
I started YU STEPANEL to create heirlooms, things that can be enjoyed for a long time because they are made only with fine materials, completely by hand which offers that touch of individuality to each single piece. YU STEPANEL jewellery is, thus, for those, who takes pleasure in nuances, small details, warm pleasant materials that come from nature, and that wear on your skin well. They are for those who like doing things properly, and so expect this level of quality in things they buy, things they wear, too.
