These are some of the things we have made so far! See below for more samples. More to come ...
Rings of varying sizes, patterned bracelets and interesting pendants are made from the handles of spoons, forks and sometimes butter knives. All the flatware is researched so that you can be provided with the name of the pattern and the year it was made. Most flatware is from the early 1900's to the early 1970's. We have some sterling silver, but most is silver plated. You can also provide us with a piece that has sentimental meaning and we can turn it into a lovely piece of jewelry.
Two pieces of silver are required to make these intricate bracelets. Usually we only use the most ornate patterns for bracelets, but any pattern can be used at your request
Freshwater pearls, Czech glass and amethyst adorn these pendants made from a fork or spoon handle hung on a sterling silver chain.
Spoon pendants are made from the scoops of various spoons: teaspoons, tablespoons, coffee spoons, youth spoons, iced tea spoons, jelly spoons, serving spoons and our favourite - sugar spoons! The scoop can be the original shape, flat, stamped, half-hammered or fully hammered. The scoop is then adorned with various gems, ceramic, charms or Czech glass beads.
Requests are welcome!
Usually we use dinner forks, dessert forks, cocktail forks and meat forks to make fork rings, tine earrings and elephant pendants. There are many other types of forks such as oyster forks, cold meat forks etc. Some are too dangerous to be made into jewelry!
Dinner knife handles are different from other pieces. They are often hollow, sometimes solid and sometimes look hollow, but have a ceramic filling. We use mostly the hollow ones. They fit well on licorice leather as a slider or we adorn the knife ends with gems & other beads then hang them on a sterling silver chain.
