This week on Metalsmith Benchtalk Jay Whaley will interview Toby Pomeroy, an ethical metalsmith and jewelr who has traveled the world in search of fair mined gold. We'll ask him about his journey, about gold mining pracitces and how we can do our part to support ethical metalsmithing.

Growing up in India, Toby discovered his commitment to life in balance. Today TOBY POMEROY™ is a world leader in environmentally sustainable and socially responsible jewelry. The launch of EcoGold and EcoSilver set a new standard, defining ethical luxury in ways never seen previously. Marrying timeless design with social responsibility, TOBY POMEROY jewelry truly makes sustainability beautiful.

Inspired by craftspeople of India and touched by the natural beauty of the environment, Toby became fascinated with nature-influenced design. Today, TOBY POMEROY studio is a handful of young artists who, fascinated with texture and form, live to work with their hands. Their commitment to live, learn and create in harmony has the artisans forging reclaimed and source-certified, Fairmined TRUE GOLD™ metals into graceful forms inspired by the simplicity of nature. While technologies have come and gone in the over thirty years that Toby Pomeroy has designed jewelry, his studio continues to pursue the purity of the ancient craft. Like their process, the studio’s designs are timeless, refined and beautiful.
