Eco Friendly Jewelry from Finland

This is an innovative line of jewelry by Secco! Made of recycled cell phone key pads and zippers!

SECCO consists of an enthusiastic group of people, among which you can find designers, producers, and material collectors. The network is based on criteria that unites makers and users: innovation, quality, cooperation and sustainability.

The raw materials are acquired from various waste collection and recycling companies. Many of these are social enterprises, who strive to employ long-term unemployed, people with disabilities or immigrants.

The SECCO workshop was established in spring 2002 in Petäjävesi and moved 2006 to Jyväskylä, Central Finland. There young professionals from the field of crafts and industrial design work and innovate. In their laboratory materials and production methods are tested in various ways. It is an open ground for experimenting with ideas.
