Sturm Bros.’ does Slow Fashion

Slow Fashion is a little sister of the Slow Food Movement.  Both movements have similar premises, encouraging consumers to buy better quality less often, with an eye towards ethical production. Slow Fashion is at the center of Sturm Bros.’ creative process and business model.

The full name of the little store in Historic Downtown Excelsior Springs, MO is Sturm Brothers’ Custom Design and Fine Jewelry.   Our middle name is Custom Design and custom is at the heart of the slow fashion movement.



Slow Fashionistas shop their closets, their mother’s closets and even their sisters before they purchase.  Their eye is trained to what suits their tastes, color palettes and life styles. Trends don’t rule a Slow Fashionista; it adds spice to an already beautiful wardrobe. Inheriting three well worn rings from Aunt Lucy bring joy to these ladies.  Why?  Sturm Brothers’ Custom Design use creativity and craftsmanship to turn those three beloved rings into a new-to-her jewelry piece that the Slow Fashionista will wear for her lifetime.

  After melting the precious metals, the jeweler shapes the band.  

This ring has two bands.   

 The next step is to solder the two bands together and shape the boxes that holds the unique stone.

The beautiful new ring emerges from the “found” and inherited items.
