This time 10 years ago, Arabel had just wrapped up her time as Creative Director of Leblas, the first ethical jewellery boutique on London's esteemed Sloane Street. Hungry for a new venture and fuelled by a deep-rooted desire to continue changing the jewellery industry from the inside out, she set her sights on establishing an eponymous ethical jewellery brand that would enable her to share her visions with the rest of the world.
Originating as a clicks-only business with a small but loyal clientele, the Lebrusan Studio that now exists a decade on is an evolved but still family owned, progressive and principled brand we are endlessly proud to call our own. As one of the world's first ever Fairtrade-licensed jewellery businesses, we are considered to be leaders in the sustainable jewellery movement. Now available by appointment in two physical locations - Brighton and The London Diamond Bourse - we are very happy spending our days uniting ethically-minded clients with designer jewellery they can feel truly proud of.
We pride ourselves on being approachable, young in spirit, and firm believers of freedom of choice. We also know that with freedom comes responsibility, which is why we place climate justice and socieconomic reparations at the heart of everything we do.
Characterised by delicate forms, intricate hand-engravings, nature-inspired features, nods to bygone eras and a vigilant attention to detail, our style is whimsical and distinctive. Influenced by Arabel's rich experiences and Spanish roots, our unique jewellery sets us apart from other UK jewellery designers.
Sustainability isn't just about ethical gold and ethically mined gemstones. It's about championing people and skills; honouring our histories. As proud members of the Created in the UK scheme our jewels are fashioned by the experienced hands of British artisans, showcasing traditional techniques and upholds cultural heritage.
Our ethical jewellery is crafted using carefully selected materials of traceable or recycled sources. By attaining Fairtrade and Fairmined licenses, working only with trusted suppliers, simplifying our supply chains and always asking questions, we can rest assured that our creations are beautiful inside and out.
As well as a mum, partner and friend, Arabel Lebrusan is a leading visual artist, critically acclaimed jewellery designer and pioneer of the ethical jewellery movement. With over 20 years of jewellery industry experience behind her and a variety of accolades to show for it, Arabel designs timeless heirloom jewels to be cherished by generations to come.
