Handmade Silver Stud Earrings ARC Jewellery

I get a lot of silver offcuts here at ARC Jewellery but luckily I have several designs where I can use recycled silver in the form of little pebbles.  

The offcuts are melted into balls of various sizes and then either left ball shaped or flattened with a hammer and facetted (with a much smaller hammer) to give a lovely surface texture.  They are then added to earrings, rings, bangles and pendants and when polished they add a lovely sparkly detail to the design.

My most popular recycled silver items are these earrings.  The studs and dangles look great together in a row of piercings.  The studs are available in several sizes ranging from a very small 3mm (or smaller) up to 7mm diameter...or larger if you like.  As with most of my earrings they are also available as singles and are very popular as a unisex stud earring or as a first pair for newly pierced ears.


Little balls of recycled silver are used here to embellish earrings and a pendant

arc jewellery website update

As spring is well and truly here I thought it was about time my website had a bit of a spring clean so there have been a few fixes, updates and new editions carried out recently.  

As I mostly use Twitter these days it makes sense to have a twitter feed added to the homepage of  It's an easy way of keeping the latest news up front and clearly visible and I'm very pleased with how it now looks.

ARC Jewellery birthday celebrations

We will shortly be celebrating our 3rd birthday at ARC Jewellery and are getting creative to design something special to mark the occasion.  Not sure yet what form it will take, maybe a pendant or perhaps a bangle but one thing is for sure, I will be keeping this piece for myself as a little reminder of how far we have come and what we've achieved during the past few years.

It has been an amazing time and has gone incredibly quickly.  There have been a few hiccups along the way but thankfully there have been many more ups than downs so we have a lot to celebrate and look forward to.  

Of course none of it would have been possible without all the help and support from our customers, stockists, friends, family and fellow creative folk, providing advice and encouragement along the way.  We will be raising our glasses of bubbly to each and every one of you and are looking forward to many more years of continued success for ARC Jewellery.
