Rings created from Decorative Baby Spoons

I have had so much fun designing these rings.  I use small baby spoons and hammer the ladel and then slightly heat them up to make them easy to bend.  Then I carefully forge them around a ring mandrel and then polish with my foredom.  I like these because they are bigger than the usual spoon rings and don't really look like silverware.

New Silverware Designs

 I've been working on some new jewelry designs using some new pieces of vintage silverplate silverware I found at various antique sales.  I'm having so much fun!  In the first picture I created a gorgeous bangle from vintage sugar tongs.  I've been creating spoon jewelry for over 10 years and I have never run across this pattern. It is Nils-John silverplate.   I curled the fork ends around and charms could be added for some extra bling.   I'm still trying to decide if I'm going to keep this one for myself since this is a one of a kind piece. 
More to come, so stay tuned!

Love you to the moon and back..

Back by popular demand! One of my favorites and a saying that I have told my children for years. I love you to the moon and back. This can be customized numerous ways but most customers prefer this one. I left out the "I" on this one because sometimes more than one person will be giving the gift or some people just prefer to leave it off. Of course, I can always add it. The stars are additional charms I add with the children's inital. You can add as many as you would like. Each one is $5.00. The total cost as you see it here is $42.00. If you are interested in ordering one, please feel free to contact me at or go to my website at and if this is for Christmas, all online orders have to be submitted by December 15th.
