Ecosilver; Sterling and Recycled

Ecosilver; Sterling and Recycled

What started out as a beach clean, then became a hobby, and evolved into a small business and we have kept our ethics the same since day one. Everything we do and make where possible is recycled and sustainably sourced. All card, glass, and 90% of our silver is recycled.

Our recycled silver is known as ‘Ecosilver’, which is still 100% sterling silver, but is made from refined previously used scrap sterling silver. It is made from a traceable and fully audited process which makes it an attractive product for today’s eco-aware jewellery buyers. This coupled with our seaglass which is 100% up-cycled, means our jewellery is sustainable, and non-harmful to the planet. We even use house hold non-harmful cider vinegar as a cleaning agent, and oxidise our ecosilver signature necklace tags (one can be seen in the above image) using boiled eggs!

We are always looking at the best ways to keep our production and materials as sustainable and recycled as possible, and one day we even hope to explore new products that hold the same values as our jewellery.
