All of the jewellery made at Bluebell Lane Jewellery is made using 100% Recycled Sterling Silver.
There are some pieces that I don't make myself, such as chains and findings. Please read below for more info on these.
Chain and Findings
Currently the chains I use are made using regular Sterling Silver, but one of my eco-goals for this year is to source Recycled Sterling Silver chains. This is proving to be a little harder than I would like, but I am determined to sort this by the end of 2021.
If you already have a chain that you would like to repurpose, I am more than happy to send just the pendent, please just drop me an email before, or within a couple of hours of placing your order to let me know.
STUD POSTS & EARRING HOOKS
I am pleased to say that all Stud Posts and Earring Hooks are now made in house, so are 100% Recycled Sterling Silver! Wahoo!.
The current butterfly backs I use are made using regular Sterling Silver. I am looking in to making these in house too, and exploring other options too.
As with the chains above, if you already have a pair of earring backs that you can reuse, and would like to just order the earrings themselves, then please just drop me an email before, or within a couple of hours of placing your order and I'll be happy to accommodate.
Any off-cuts or scraps that are produced in the workshop are melted down to be reused, meaning nothing goes to waste.
I also use salt, vinegar, and an eco washing up liquid in place of chemicals when it comes to pickling and cleaning your jewellery.
All of the packaging I use is compostable, other than the postcards which are recyclable. I am in the process of changing my postcard supplier, and hope to have these be compostable too in the next couple of months.
One of my main goals this year is to become a carbon neutral brand, and I'm currently working with Nula Carbon to achieve this.
