Brining together pioneering figures from the worlds of jewellery, fashion, and beyond - FLUX provides a platform for industry leaders who question the way in which we approach provenance and sustainability by examining the complex journey from mine to market.

This two-day event will build on our inaugural conference in 2016 to further encourage a dynamic platform for debate, providing an atmosphere of collaboration between open-minded individuals who wish to be part of something truly trailblazing.

Day one will focus on a range of topics relating to responsible and sustainable sourcing in the jewellery sector for small and medium sized businesses. You will hear from some of the best ethical jewellers in the UK about the challenges they have faced and overcome.

Day two will look at some of the wider issues in the industry and beyond. We will go into specific areas of the supply chain such as human rights and environmental impact, as well as hearing about big brands and global initiatives.

You are welcome to attend either day or both.
