Upcycled silver ball earring studs.

Made from my discarded sterling silver scraps.

I heat the bits of left-over silver up into little molten balls, let them cool, and solder sterling silver ear posts to the back before giving a high shine polish.

I love the varying and imperfect texture of them, and the differing sizes.

I choose approx. 4mm size balls for the ear studs shown in this listing.

I hope you like them. They come displayed on an earring card and nestled in one of my branded pillow boxes.

Best wishes,
Xx Joanna


It’s always bothered me, all my scraps of silver, the waste!
I worked as a Fair Trade Designer for over a decade and it was a big part of my role, to be mindful about anything from paper waste to the companies carbon footprint. We developed a lot of ranges from recycled materials in India, Bangladesh, Bali and Nepal from plastic bags, bottles and packaging to the re-using of production waste and factory off-cuts. I’ve often just stared at my off cuts of silver and wondered, what could I do with it short of having it melted down into recycled silver to then re-work?
Here is the result in these earrings, using my discarded silver. It's a start. And I love them.
