This cute star necklace is a recycled sterling silver star, which is hammered on one side and plain on the other so is reversible. If you would like an initial in the centre please contact me (see link above) with your requirements - saying which side and whether you would like it uncoloured or black.The star measures c. 1.8 cm in length and 1.2 cm across, it is cut by hand from recycled silver sheet using a piercing , saw so each star is a little different and unique to the wearer :) Once it has been sanded, hammered, soldered and polished the item is coated in a lacquer to prevent tarnish and hung on an 18" recycled silver chain.These items are made to order so please allow a week for postage.
Look Behind the Label:
My is ethos reduce, reuse, recycle. All the silver I now use is recycled; including the sheet, wire, necklace chains, solder, earring scrolls and pendant bails. When I have enough scrap I cut out the middle man and melt it down myself. With copper and brass, I use offcuts and scrap, this is even better than recycled because it cuts out the extra transport and fumes created by the recycling process I use recycled tissue paper for wrapping, recycled paper and non-toxic glue to seal the parcels. I use citric acid to clean my items as it is non-toxic My torch uses propane cylinders which are recycled not thrown away The electricity that powers my tools is 100% renewable! This is just a little of what I do and what I believe in - go to my website and find out more.
