Gleaned is the sustainable jewellery collection designed & made by Kes Harper in her off grid solar studio.

Playing on the historical meaning of 'gleaned', discarded steel tins are sourced and remade into decorative tin jewellery.

Colourful patterns on olive oil tins, biscuit or tea tins suggest exotic places of olive groves, mermaids & ornate florals. For Kes, domestic castoffs become decorative earrings, necklaces, brooches and rings.


Kes gently turns our attention to reuse and gleaning. Her jewellery captures the otherwise unseen details of our everyday, sometimes framing them in sterling silver, wrapped in intrigue of their origin.


Gleaned jewellery is elegant, contemporary and industrial in style. Earrings embrace silver fittings in their design while lariat necklaces forgo traditional fastenings for a decorative ring through which the wearer can slide the chain, customising their necklace when worn.
