FORM, FUNCTION + SUSTAINABILITY
The art and practice of slow fashion through form, function and sustainability are what it's all about. Color, shape and texture also play a huge role in design choices here at The Wavering Line.
When you wear The Wavering Line you are consciously supporting + contributing to a small business and sharing the love for others to do the same. For that, I am forever grateful.

All leather used by The Wavering Line comes from upcycled and scrap materials. Less waste! Each piece is cut, stamped (when design allows), conditioned and assembled by hand + with heart.
Due to the small batch nature, sustainable and intentional practice of the use of upcycled and scrap leather materials, available colors often vary and come in limited quantities.
For custom or wholesale orders, please contact The Wavering Line directly about colors in stock.

With the exception of the earwires and earposts (these are ALWAYS new parts), a portion of the metal materials that are used in The Wavering Line designs come from reclaimed metal findings + jewelry.
The Wavering Line often receives donations that have lived a life as one design and are ready to be transformed into something new. The process of disassembling the findings and exploring ways to reclaim + upcycle each donated piece is an integral part of what inspires the fresh + innovative designs by The Wavering Line.
Donated pieces that are deemed unusable are taken to a local recycling or donation center. See below to learn how to donate your jewelry to be repurposed!

While polymer clay material is not highly sustainable alone and may not be produced from recycled plastics, there are responsible ways to extend the life of the material and reduce waste as much as possible. To do so, The Wavering Line sources materials that will actually sell and produces intentional small batches of jewelry to avoid any excess, truly creating what is needed.
The Wavering Line uses polymer clay scraps whenever possible for one-off and one-of-a-kind designs. In addition, making use of reclaimed and upcycled materials are a common slow fashion practice that The Wavering Line tries to incorporate with polymer clay designs.
