Gitte Nygaard
Gitte Nygaard's jewellery collection Been there-Done what, to Binchotan and Black suggests replacing diamonds with binchotan (also known as white coal). Binchotan comes from Japan and is manufactured by a centuries old tradition, which takes sustainable production into account. The design and choice of materials in the collection refers to coal and diamonds- both containing the elemental carbon C6 in the periodic table.

Gitte's jewellery is a comment about the diamond and coal industries, which are still operating at great humanitarian and ecological costs. Nygaard tries to find alternatives to "problematic" materials. Aside from using binchotan, she has used certified sustainable gold from Oro Verde for this collection.
