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)!
These gorgeous drop earrings are made from the stems of two of the teaspoons. The angled ends are where I cut off the pieces to make the heart pendant. Filed, smoothed and rounded at the top, the stems have been drilled so that they can be threaded onto earwires I’ve handcrafted from offcuts. The discs of the earwires are made from scraps of silver that have been heated, made molten and formed into balls and then flattened.
The earrings have been polished up to a mirror finish and look gorgeous!
