All the pieces in the LTD collection are made from antique sterling silver teaspoons.
Each piece is unique – one of a kind – once sold, it’s gone.
I had three spoons in this simple sleek design dating back to London 1911. They were made by the silversmiths Charlie Jacques & Frederick Bartholomew. I set myself the challenge to use every piece of all three spoons and see how many pieces of jewellery I could make from them. I managed to make 15 (some are pairs of earrings)!
This spoon ring is one of a kind. I have made spoon rings in this design before, but I’ve never put my own hallmark on any of them. The original hallmarks are usually found on the stems of teaspoons, but occasionally they appear on the bowls and in this instance the stems were totally free of hallmarks. So I couldn’t resist sending this off to the Assay Office to my own makers mark on it.
It’s quite a small ring and fit nicely onto my little finger. It is currently a size L. It could be resized slightly larger to a size M, or go down a little to a size K.
It has been polished up to a mirror finish and looks gorgeous!
