Ethics and Responsibility in the Jewelry Industry
"I have a fun fact. Did you know that between the two holidays? Valentine's Day and Mother's DAY CASS. American spent get this on average a staggering ten billion dollars every year on jewelry. Not Surprising. And that's just those two holidays alone. That's not including you know the winter holidays including birthdays anniversaries or engagements. That's only on Valentine's Day and Mother's Day which is incredible. I had no idea. Yeah me neither. And that's actually just a small fraction of the three hundred billion dollars exchanged globally from the mining of approximately ninety million carats of rough diamonds and sixteen hundred tons of gold every single year. And of course with that colossal sum of money on the line well. Human Nature can and does falter sadly succumbing sometimes to unbridled greed and avarice often quite literally on the backs of others. How many of us have really truly considered the true cost of our jewelry. I mean we may very well recall the price that we paid for it. But what about this other price? The human and environmental cost cast in twenty eighteen activists organization. Human Rights Watch published a study which is called the hidden cost of jewelry and it highlights some really heartbreaking egregious instances of human rights abuses and environmental tragedies stemming from unscrupulous mining operations such as when in two thousand eight members of this and Bob Way military staged a bloody takeover of the diamond fields and the country's Murang`a district and they slaughtered some two hundred civilian miners for the next six years. Certain factors of the government's armed forces military and police oversaw a brutal and ruthless program of torture and forced labor including forced child labor and their class to pilfer the diamond fields in two thousand eleven. Human Rights Watch documented a pervasive program of sexual violence against workers at the hands of the private security company hired to protect the Tara Mine in Papua New Guinea. While Canadian Gold Mining Company began mining operations in the Maroteaux district of northern Uganda without even notifying or securing the necessary rights or permissions from the indigenous Karamojong community. The grim reality is that gold around your neck. The silver on your wrist the platinum on your finger or the gems in your ears may very well have come for one of these mines or others like them but do not despair dress listeners. Because today we're going to bring you an episode which hopefully informs and educates you about some of these issues that are going on in the jewelry industry and we hope to shut a light on the ever growing movement to write these wrongs and also to institute responsibility and transparency all along the supply chain in the Jewelry Industry today. We are joined by jewelry designer educator and activist. Bliss Lau to talk about ethics and responsibility in the jewelry trade and what we as a consumer can do to effect change. Bless all welcome to the show bliss. Welcome to the show thanks I'm happy to be here. Yeah we're so excited to talk about Jewelry Today. But before we delve into what? I think will be some rather surprising subject matter for a lot of our listeners. I'm hoping that you can tell us a little bit about your own background. And how did you become a jewelry designer and specifically when did you begin zeroing in on some of the problems in the jewelry industry that we're going to cover today sure I? I went to Parsons as a studied fashion design and then I actually started off as a handbag designer and I did that for several years and I used to have this handbag that had the chains down the front of it that looked like the cables of the Brooklyn Bridge and at some point because I studied fashion design. I kind of was procrastinating. And for fun I made myself a body chain with a chain that had used on my handbags and it became like a huge explosive interest in the industry. Basically like what we would call viral. Now that was actually I was viral and it was the first time I ever heard the word was when it went. Viral eventually made myself actually. My first ring was a ring called the kaleidoscope bring which is still in my collection and because I studied apparel I wanted to make a ring that referenced apparel in the sense of when you get dressed you get up every day. It's a form of identity so you choose to put on your shirt and your jacket and your outfit and is who you are and when I wanted to enter into jewelry space. I didn't want to create something. That was an imposition on your body. I wanted to create something that in that same way would give you choice. The kaleidoscope ring is one ring made a four pieces so every single day. You can choose to wear it differently and it can evoke personality. That's what I love about it. I actually am mostly a bespoke bridal designer now and I have moved into fine jewelry in around twenty fourteen and I did that because it wasn't really a plan My now husband proposed to me with a sketchbook and asked me to design my own rang and it was actually at the Metropolitan Museum at the Alexander McQueen show Oh lovely because he knows I love fashion and it was the first experience that I had in picking out a gemstone and thinking about fine jewelry and then learning about fine jewelry and eventually I stopped making costume jewelry and just fully dove into making fine jewelry and bespoke bridal so we know each other quite well so I know your work quite well. You have been struggling a lot personally with some of the ethics within the jewelry industry and this is like one of the new major directions of your work. So when did you first start becoming aware that there were problems? I mean all of us we. Everyone knows that there are certain issues when it comes to gold and diamonds and things like that but it feels like a really big idea and when it's a really big idea it doesn't feel like you can do anything and one of the things that I love about. The jewelry industry is that your industry is essentially made up of a millions and millions of independent small businesses myself included. And when I started one of the things that I did that really made me realize that I could make an impact with my design and also simultaneously made me realize how challenging it can be was

"Let's wait to see what happens in two or three years time as fashion begins to reflect, hopefully what will happen in two years time with kind of begun so out some of these issues. And we've got a bit more confident about playfulness and sexuality and the they will come back because in the end, we like having sex and we'd like close just finally on this Andrew, very true fashion has always relied on the provocateur in one way or another. We had seen the run back in the seventies posing nude for his own label. Calvin Klein bringing the the, the tiny white briefs above the genes waistline where is the provoker in today's fashion? Do we need a little bit more rebelliousness injected into? It'll. Well, I again, I think some of the fashion houses they want their cake and eat it. They've had the likes of Alexander McQueen have had a John Galliano who who are provocateurs, but you one who, unfortunately committed suicide and one who got caught up in an anti-semitic which has nearly destroyed his Co. that he's made a something of an apology on a comeback. But I think they they, they won't rebelliousness, but they won't make sure is commercial. Again, coming back to Tom Ford. He certainly not going to say anything to ridiculous, but he has got independence because he owns his own company and that's allowed him to come out here. And he's not kind of dismissing these ideas if far from it, he's saying, this is a moment questionnaire, but let's not give up on the idea that in the end, people kind of want to look hot in their clothes, and that will come back even if for the moment, people want to feel a bit more safe androgynous and kind of know on the market as it were that will.

I'm just gonna have some privacy and said the front hang on isn't your net going to be like it wasn't too bad. I was like, Okay. okay. True. True. And there's quite a bit of a buffer between this the front row in the screen. Like, it's not like the big theaters where you're really like you've you're looking behind you. No, it was it was totally fine. And I would I would think if I was going to cry drain which is every single day of ever seen in my life. I cry. There you go. I'm glass case emotion tenderhearted yet.

They just leave out you don't you don't have to look at anyone in the in the face that would be we'll see in my my logic is they can't see my face because first of all I'm like super sludge done, right?

And the, you know, I I've been watching them on my phone or in a magazine on my computer for years, right? So to see them on the big screen was. It was it was very much. Absolutely cried at the end when they talk about his death. And I think it's playing against tonight. Maybe I'll go tonight we're going to showing tonight. I think go, but it was fantastic.

"Commendable that you did not sensationalize the darkness of his life. You guys you, you and your fellow filmmaker. Peter really did celebrate the man, and I thought that was interesting, and I think is that what eventually led people to to be convinced to be part of the documentary? Yes, correct. I think I think you know, as soon as we started to interview some people, they would. They would talk to other people, you know, it's still a small world, the fashion world in in in England and in London, and people that have actually met and what was he had a very close circle and we have met qualified people which actually ended up not wanting to be filmed, but still they were very, very generous with their time. In the end of the day, we do feel that we've interviewed all of the right people and the way we created the family crafted every single to to be almost a cactus within the film with Spicer role, explaining something about live for the audience to understand and bring a certain amount of emotion. It really did come across that way to the viewer. As well. Was there a big takeaway or piece of advice that you took from talking to Alexander mcqueen's inner circle that you used while making your documentary? I think you know, I mean over older the the main thing I think is you know, we have to be very careful. You know, in the creative industry, the the demands on the on the creative people. You know, you don't set out as a creative person to become a massive brand. You might work at it and you might wanna be successful and and be recognizable. But sometimes things go out hands but not purposely, there's no one actually making it go out. It's just become too big and I ever to suspend that these that you've created. And I think that's one thing that Lee struggled with law is just created something bigger than than my could be. So I think as a creative person, you've just got to be careful to find the right balance with you life and being able to protect yourself and protect your core of you all. Yeah, I had read that people's initial reluctance to be. Part of the documentary had partly due in some cases with people say, we don't want lead to look like a victim because the person who put the most pressure on him was himself. Where did that pressure come from? I think you have to understand with Lee is humble background, you, you don't. If you get a chance to be successful in life, you take it. You never stop working, really hard. You know, you don't have many chances when you come from vibe by unbel- working class by grant in the UK. I think that idea of trying to push himself to be successful. When does success yet at ten to success, there was no way it was going to walk away from me to lend do nothing. Sure. I think the pressure can from in I, you know, it's very interesting you you portray his early life and he really was a struggling artist. You show how he makes some art from the designs that have Saran wrap and garbage bags and other things in it. You talk about how it ten pounds. Lee could almost make an entire show. He was very creative and crafty within his, his very meagre means and he became one of the biggest designers of his time. What a, what a transition that must've been. It could not have been easy. How did that transition affect him? Being the intensity of having to reach commercial success became a bit too much. You know, you have to sell more and more and you have to create more and more collection. And if that Lee while he was in Paris, kept on working his own brand, so we have to brand to provide to integrate for. So I think that was almost too much but at the same time, so commendable in so admirable. You know, we never wanted to let Alexander McQueen ease on brand die and use us on salary from Japan she to to sustain these Brandon. I think, sadly with the ending the happen. But when you look at his very inspiring, always didn't want to sell his soul into somebody else's business. He wanted his own business. He's on name to be successful. Yeah, you know, you talk about the sort of the sad ending..

"Oh, and you can get extra apps and channels and stuff, and I realized they have this new fashion channel called made to measure m to m fairly hip kids. And it's amazing. They have a whole bunch of features a whole bunch of documentaries a whole bunch like you can watch you can see sketches from recent collections from like every designer they have content specific to the channel. They have other things that are created outside. Like, the senior Nell they have it erase. It was like five or six episodes.

But then also soul-crushing to know that this will never he will never create again because he's not here anymore. So it's a fabulous made to measure. If you have apple TV, it's super acceptable.
