Hand Made Jewellery With A Difference
Designed and made by myself Victoria in Lancashire, mostly using recycled materials.
I love to source old unloved materials, and love making pieces of jewellery from recycled items that already have a history.
Cutlery jewellery is my favourite to design and make, creating a ring that will be worn and treasured from an old un-loved spoon and proudly keeping the history of an old historic piece.
I love the heritage of spoon jewellery.
Spoon rings where first made in the late 1600s as wedding rings by servants who could not afford precious metals.
Spoons would be stolen from their master and made into a wedding band.
Servants who were caught would be sentenced for stealing a silver spoon, This expression of love would be punished with imprisonment.
Today spoon rings still represent the meaning of love and are a wonderful piece of heritage not forgotten.
Sold silver cutlery jewellery is sent with a change of use certificate issued by Sheffield assay office or re hallmarked.
Any solid silver cutlery jewellery without the original hallmark under the legal required weight for hallmarking, will be sent with a picture of its original hallmark, proudly keeping the history of the historic piece.
