Reclaimed Circuit Board Jewellery: A Review of Ashley Heather Jewellery Silver Pin

 I was lucky enough to win this pin in a recent #makeathingaday competition on Instagram. 

The pin came from South Africa so took around 3 weeks to arrive (I was very impatient, but Ashley Heather was very good at emailing tracking numbers etc). 

When it arrives it was packed carefully in a Jiffy bag, envelope and then a little hessian bag with Ashley Heather's logo on it. 

The pin itself is 5 cm in length and silver. It is very simplistic,  streamlined and understated in its design. It looks organic, unfussy, pared down, delicate, understated yet elegant. 


Ashley Heather's jewellery's unique selling point is they are made out of precious metals, in their Woodstock workshop, taken from reclaimed circuit boards from a small refinery in South Africa. They concentrate on ensuring they use sustainable practices and materials from when they source their materials, the manufacturing techniques used when making the piece of jewellery right through to packaging.   This would make a great talking point and as the use of sustainable and recycled materials becomes more important as landfill sites etc get full, it is great that Ashley Heather have taken this stance.

I would not hesitated to buy from Ashley Heather Jewellery in the future. Her customer service is great, the jewellery eye-catching and the materials are obtained  from an unusual  source.
