Rings on her fingers and bells on her toes…

March 1st, 2010

Less of the bells on her toes though – as I’d just like to let you know that I’ve listed a set of new rings in my shop – rings for your fingers – more to come soon. They are all made from sets of sterling silver teaspoons and therefore come in small limited editions. When you buy one of these rings you will be safe in the knowledge that only a few other rings like it exist.

Sourcing, restoring and re-purposing antique silverware into unique delicate jewellery is something I really enjoy. I much prefer to use fine silverware as a starting point for my jewellery as this way I am recycling rather than using up the world’s natural resources. There is a sense of history with each piece and I feel that as I am forming each ring, sanding and polishing it, I am capturing a memory or an essence of the past.
