WHITE/SPACE

The Designer

A Parsons alum, founder Khadijah Fulton spent a decade designing for some of the most recognizable names in fashion. After becoming a mother, Khadijah found that she wanted to create items that honored a confident, subdued interpretation of style - approachable yet distinct, with versatility and longevity at the fore. She hopes that this considered approach will return an inherent sense of value to the wearer and give them pieces that can be worn and loved for years to come.

Each piece is crafted with care in her Seattle studio or in partnership with small workshops on the west coast.

Philosophy

WHITE/SPACE is a brand born of a love for the beauty of restraint in design, the inherent grace of feminine strength, and the necessity to treat our environment and each other with love and respect.

They work hard to pare each piece down to it’s essence, as well as think through how it can be seamlessly integrated into a modern woman’s lifestyle.  They are mothers, sisters, friends, confidants, rulebreakers, entrepreneurs, badasses - all gorgeously complex individuals and an endless source of inspiration. By providing long-lasting modern treasures that compliment who you are, they aim to bring attention to the individual style and beauty within.

They’re grounded in a belief that magnificence lies in elegance, not ostentation. Pursuing sophistication in the unexpected, they create thoughtfully designed pieces that are unique, yet designed to be versatile and cherished for years.  With creative influences hailing from mid-century architecture and ancient goldsmithing to minimalist art and sculpture, the entire WHITE/SPACE collection explores the marriage of daring dichotomies—earthy and modern, streamlined and textured, restrained and sexy, delicate and strong.

They also believe that they vote for the future with our purchases, so they are constantly working to create our pieces as sustainably and responsibly as we can, creating an opportunity for you to choose with purpose and intention.

Materials

In addition to the time-honored ancient beauty of gold and silver, White/Space jewelry is also crafted from solid precious metals because of their durability and recyclability. They re-use the waste materials of their design and production processes. All of the raw precious metals they use are made from recycled material, purchased from green certified refineries that meet the highest standards for ethical sourcing and minimal environmental impact. They also recycle all of our scraps generated in the development and production process of our jewelry. All of their stones are conflict-free, from sources that adhere to the Kimberley Process or from Canadian mines. When they wear recycled materials they honor our own power to adapt, reinvent and flourish. It also reduces our carbon footprint. And by using gems sourced from Canadian mines and Kimberly-certified distributors, they support an honest day’s work.

They also use lab-created stones for some of our colored gemstones to further reduce the impact of mining rare natural gems out of the ground. They are visually and chemically the exactly the same as mined stones, but do not contribute to the land destruction and resource depletion in the way that naturally-mined stones do. They offer their custom bridal clients the option to choose lab-created diamonds, which also are exactly the same as natural diamonds, except they don’t require the environmental damage incurred in mining.

Make

Creating their jewelry in the USA in-house and with small independent producers is an incredibly important aspect of their philosophy. It not only allows them to work closely with the artisans fabricating the jewelry, but it also enables them to deliver handmade pieces to order - keeping a close eye on quality, which they wouldn’t be able to do if they were shipping them from overseas. More importantly, as an American company they want to support other creatives, namely other jewelers, stone setters, casters, CAD artists, and US-based suppliers to the industry. Their jewelry requires precision in fabrication, and that means skilled work from talented individuals. A history of quality craftsmanship is part of the American tradition and has in recent history been in danger of being lost forever in various industries.  Even though they’re small, they’re a company creating new products and they want to be part of supporting the revival of that tradition as well as supporting other small businesses.
