I’m a Bohemian Artisan who hand crafts jewelry from upcycled Antique, vintage and unusual solid silver cutlery. I love to travel and collect my spoons from all over the world and sell the finished hand crafted rings on line as well as at festivals, craft fairs and selected shops.
Spoon rings were first made in 17th century England as wedding gifts by servants who could not afford expensive precious metals. Servants would steal a silver spoon from their master and have it turned into a wedding ring to be worn on the thumb of their true love. Servants who were caught were sentenced for “stealing a silver spoon” and this expression of love would be punished with a sentence of 7 years imprisonment overseas.
Ever since these times, spoon rings have been a timeless and unique gift of love, a wonderful piece of heritage not forgotten.
“You weren’t born with a silver spoon in your mouth, but can live life with one on your hand”.
