ALL ABOUT US
I am not solely a designer but I am a storyteller with a certain stubbornness (for the good), asserting my own ideas and ways. I founded All About Articus when I was at art school early 2017 because I could not stop dreaming.
And I am still dreaming that All About Articus will be a brand that has the courage to rely on its own rules and admits that it is worth believing in the good.
I am dreaming of a soft rosé delivery van & french fries every friday. I am dreaming of people taking care of people, the environment and the raw materials that nature gives us. I am dreaming of creating a creative laboratory a place where you feel really comfortable and where customers and our creative exchange. I am dreaming about our clients dreaming about us.
My name ist Elisabeth Articus and I am the Designer and founder of All About Articus.

OUR PRODUCITON IN SPAIN
All our jewellery is manufactured carefully by our master goldsmiths in a family run manufactory with more than 70 years of experience.
In the manufactory, they pay attention to fair working hours, age and health care and an industry fair payment.
Their experience and our mutually honest love for fine jewellery, which has been passed on for the third generations, convinced us to have found the right partner.
We do work closely together with them and visit them on a regular basis to discuss and develop ideas.
A NATURAL LOVE STORY
Gold is a very sustainable and high quality material, which can be processed further and further, especially if it is processed in a high purity form. Therefor we have decided for environmental but also ethical reasons to work exclusively with recycled Gold is a very sustainable and high quality material, which can be processed further and further, especially if it is processed in a high purity form.
Therefor we have decided for environmental but also ethical reasons to work exclusively with recycled gold - and to transform it in a very pure (18k) form to our jewellery.
In this way we do not have to extract new resources from nature and we also integrate jewellery pieces with a high longevity and good recycling possibilities into the cycle.
We love it when it glitters and sparkles but working with diamonds from mines was unthinkable for us. The damage and suffering caused annually by diamond mining to the nature and people working in the mine is more than irresponsible.
Therefore, we work with lab grown diamonds, which do not differ in appearance and its glitter and elegance from mined diamonds.
But the footprint makes a crucial difference.
We are all not perfect but every day a little bit we try to do good.
We try to eliminate plastic and minimize unnecessary paper consumption.
We work to shorten the shipping distances, preferably with partners from Barcelona and Spain.
From 2022, we will involve a charity organization in our work to help mothers in financial need.
We use shipping boxes twice, bicycle our orders out of barcelona, avoid overproduction and are so grateful and proud that we have returning rate under 1% we think that's a good way to save emissions together : so thank you from us and form Mother Earth .
"jewellery designs should capture your stories"
Good jewellery design should be like a never-ending good story. One that you want to hear again and again, embellish and keep telling.
My jewellery designs should capture your stories, remind you of them and pass them on at some point.
We don't do collections, we'd rather celebrate each piece of jewellery. In doing so, we dedicate a solid good reason to be happy to each piece of jewellery.
Wheneveer I start to design a new piece of jewellery it is always a feeling, a mood, a solid good reason to be happy that gives me the impulse to create the new piece.
I wish you as much joy in wearing it as I have in creating it.
