Mettle armed and ready neckpiece 24k gold plated neck plate on a snake chain. Mettle fair trade - the award winning ‘mettle’ range is the brainchild of a melbourne based fashion designer who has worked within the industry for a number of years, both locally and abroad in london and paris for designers such as alexander mcqueen & martin grant. Each piece is fair trade accredited, hypoallergenic, limited edition and hand made using recycled bomb shell metal from the khmer rouge and upcycled materials. The entire range is produced in cambodia within a small, not for profit income generation and skills training project owned by it`s members. All pieces are finished to the highest quality standards with our aim being to bridge the gap between design driven pieces and fair trade ethics.
