Pat Kane, founder of Reuzi, on second-hand design finds, sustainability and a lifelong love affair with jewellery

“WE used to think that recycling was the bee’s knees, but now we realiseit’s the last resort”

My whole, entire first salary I spent on a pair of earrings. Jewellery is my indulgence. It lasts forever. I want to have a really meaningful collection.

I collect pendants, and each one reminds me of a special moment – school graduation, college graduation, and I have one that my granny made for everyone in the family to celebrate my grandparent’s 50th anniversary.
