New Ring Designs 2016

New Ring Designs in the Milomade shop 2016

One of the most popular posts on my blog is one I wrote back in 2010 about a set of new ring designs I had photographed and wanted to show off. It receives thousands of hits a month and it pains me that people are more interested in really old content on this blog rather than the new stuff I’m posting.

So I thought it was time to do an updated post showing all the new ring designs I’ve added to my online shop this year.

I love working with vintage silverware – it’s been a passion of mine for so many years now and that passion isn’t waning. Since I started recycling antique silverware into spoon rings, I’ve accumulated a lot of spoon bowls and these haven’t gone to waste. Instead I’ve expanded my range of jewellery with two other collections called ‘Echoes’ and ‘Enduring Love’ and I’ve got more ideas in the pipeline too.

Anyway back to rings. Things haven’t changed much since that post written in 2010, the rings are still made from the stems of old spoons and the message is still the same – they’re about capturing a piece of history and passing it onto a new generation as a wearable heirloom. The rings still come with a little provenance tag that outlines the original maker as well as the city and year in which the teaspoons were assayed.

One new addition to the collection is the boxes that the rings are packaged in. I’ve recently acquired some lovely round specimin boxes and have branded these with the collection logo and embellished them with maps.

So if you buy a ring that was originally assayed in Sheffield, your box with have a Sheffield map on the inside. And now onto those new ring desings…
