Gorgeous sterling silver and multi-coloured oval stud earrings, designed to make a bold statement while being kind to the environment.Featuring sterling silver circle studs and resin ovals filled with ocean plastic, these earrings will always stand out in a crowd. They are designed to be lightweight, allowing you to wear them all day. Perfect for those who cherish sustainable fashion and people who love to wear bright, bold earrings.Whether you’re seeking a statement piece for yourself or a meaningful gift for a loved one, these earrings are sure to delight.As part of my commitment to sustainability, these earrings are made with a combination of recycled sterling silver, eco friendly plant based resin from a renewable resource, and microplastics collected from a local beach in Mornington. By repurposing and incorporating microplastics into the design, I contribute to reducing plastic waste and promote eco-conscious fashion.The circles have been hand forged by me from silver sheet, and given my signature dashed hammered texture before being polished to a high shine. Each oval is also handcrafted and the microplastics have been individually placed in the resin, resulting in a mesmerising blend of colours and patterns.These earrings are handmade by me using whatever marine plastic I have on hand. This differs all the time and is based on what I can collect from my local beach.MATERIALS– Oval Drop – Eco Friendly Plant Based Resin and Microplastics (marine plastic) – Stud Circles – Sterling SilverSIZES– Total Length – 70mm – Resin Drop Width – 12 mm – Silver Stud Width – 12 mm – Stud Post Length – 10 mm– Ear Back Type – ButterflyFor every piece of microplastic jewellery sold, two dollars will be donated to the Sea Turtle Foundation to protect the world’s turtles, and two dollars will be donated to Sea Shepherd to help their efforts to protect the world’s oceans, marine life, and beaches. 
I am a self-taught silversmith who uses traditional techniques and unconventional materials to create beautiful handmade jewellery. Driven by a desire to create designs that were not only visually appealing but also kind to the environment, recycling, upcycling, and using ethically sourced and eco-friendly materials became the foundations of my artistic process. I even fossick for my own gemstones!

Leanne Allison Designs

Eco-Friendly and Sustainable Jewellery

Hi there! I’m Leanne, an ethical artisan whose love of expressing myself through various artistic mediums and a passion for the environment combined to create Leanne Allison Designs. I rediscovered my love for jewellery making about 15 years after picking up my first set of pliers and decided to teach myself more about the craft. When I faced a period of illness that led to me leaving my job I turned to my creativity as a source of solace and a means to support myself financially. Equipped with my skills and a strong sense of purpose, (and an eagerness to not starve to death) I transformed my passion into a business. I believe in making a difference. I not only create jewellery that is beautiful but also raises awareness about our environmental footprint. And I donate to causes that help look after our planet.
