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
