Sterling silver long earrings 'Jellyfish'
Jellyfish earrings made from recycled sterling silver and aventurine and rose quartz gems.
Dangle earrings with a long chain- earring is around 15 cm long. Perfect festival jewellery.
Inspired by the beauty of the mysterious and dangerous jellyfish- if you are not a big fan of these creatures, remember that turtles eat them to get high. :))) And we like turtles.
These are made from recycled sterling silver and the gems were polished in the Czech Republic. We generally avoid sourcing beads or gems from India and China as these countries have very poor record of workers protection. If you would like to find out more follow our blog.
Q & A
Is this item made from recycled silver?
This item is made from 100% recycled silver including the solder. Solder is a silver alloy that melts at lower temperature and is used to fuse silver together.
Some items, for instance necklaces, have parts made from conventionally minded silver. There is no substitute available at this time but we are working very hard to change this.
What does ethical jewellery mean?
We call ourselves ethical jewellers because we minimise the use of newly mined metals, we source our gems from suppliers who care about the environment and people involved in production and processing of minerals, we do not use unnecessary chemicals in the workshop, we lower our carbon footprint by minimising the use of machinery, we do not mass-produce anything and create most of our pieces to order.
Could we do any better than that? Sure, we are not perfect and we are always learning. Hopefully we will be perfect one day but for now we are doing our best. If you have a question or comment with regards to our production don’t be shy- get in touch.
Are the gems recycled?
We love using recycled gems but these go mainly into one of a kind designs. For our permanent collections we use gems from various like-minded suppliers.These come from lapidaries in the Czech Republic and they do all the polishing themselves.
