We aspire to create contemporary items embodying an understated elegance. To us, sustainability entails combining natural materials and high-quality craftsmanship. We advocate for a seasonless approach as the only viable way to reduce the pace of fashion consumption.
Each Studio Bille piece is designed with the vision of creating a heirloom, which can only be accomplished by using high-quality materials and skilled craftsmen. Studio Bille jewelry is crafted using only recycled 925 Sterling silver and ethically sourced freshwater pearls. We work with pearls grade AAA or AA, one of the finest qualities in the field of pearls. We want to minimize our waste and carbon footprint. For that reason, we endeavor to produce locally.
Local production enables us to support our community and reduce waste and resource consumption. Most of our jewelry is individually handcrafted in our studio. In contrast to mass-produced pieces, we endeavor to work with local suppliers that have honed their skills over generations. Most metal pieces are produced in a family-run foundry in Norway. We also produce all printed goods using FSC-paper from a local printery. We believe in transparency and keeping the supply chain as small as possible.
We believe that treasured items last longer, and so we hope that our customers will appreciate and cherish the work that lies behind each and every Studio Bille item. We believe that by giving our customers an item with value and meaning, it will be cared for in a different way than products produced by machines in a large factory. We want to keep things at the pace of the handcraft.
