    Default Recycled silver earring backs

    Hi everyone!

    I'm trying to move towards using recycled silver instead of standard sterling silver but haven't found any earring backs (butterfly backs) and pins made of eco silver.

    Would anyone know where to source these or if they actually exist to buy?

    Many thanks

    Well, I've had a look around, and it seems there are none in UK, at least.
    Cookson has ecosilver bullion, so you can make your own, which is super tedious, or wait until some enlightened supplier can fill the niche. Dennis.

    Argentium is registered with RJC and Cookson have both products you require.

    Much straightforward sterling silver is recycled anyway. It just happens without fuss.

    That's good to know. I haven't used Argentium silver before but will look into this. Thanks
