    Artistic and Social Commitment 


    NoWaste is a groundbreaking initiative that blends social responsibility with environmental consciousness, challenging the stereotype that jewellery is synonymous with extravagance. This avant-garde approach gives a second life to useless objects by transforming them into contemporary and ethical pieces, crafted by 89 students from Belgian jewellery schools under the guidance of their professors.

    These 170 unique pieces are showcased during the Brussels Jewellery Week, a remarkable event. Simultaneously with the international exhibition PARTICLE[s] at the MAD.

    The proceeds from the sale of these pieces significantly contribute to the non-profit association, Solidarité Grands Froids, which supports the underprivileged in Brussels.

    Beyond its social impact, the project aims to raise awareness about waste, particularly in the fashion industry, emphasizing its impact on the planet and the living conditions of workers.

    NoWaste embodies an artistic and social initiative, urging a reconsideration of our relationship with fashion and encouraging more sustainable practices.
