Shop Announcement:

Covid update: I am working and posting orders as normal from my studio in Yorkshire.

I'd still like to offer that if you are buying my jewellery as a gift and can't give the gift personally I can gift wrap any presents, add a hand-written note and send them directly to the recipient – just leave me a message when in the checkout.

Keep staying safe and sending so many kind wishes to you, Joanna

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.
