My jewelry pieces are all made by hand, one at a time, and most include treasured little bits and pieces. My style can be described as a bit edgy and I like to play with mixed metals so that they can be worn with many different companion pieces. You will notice that my hand-hammered printing is a little wonky-this is intentional-it's all part of my style. I also celebrate the imperfections found on some of these old objects, as they are scars that detail parts of their histories. I do like to go an extra step to finish my pieces with nice details, like eyelets in the drilled holes. Most smashed spoon pieces just have drilled holes...I like the more finished and refined look the eyelet gives and it's an opportunity to add another color of metal.
On the smashed spoon necklace descriptions, you will see each item marked " Extra Large," "Large," "Medium," or "Small." These labels are referring to the bowl size of the vintage or antique gumbo spoon that was used. Larger ladies usually prefer the larger pieces, whereas the small ones can look nice on a lady of any size or age, to include young girls.
Most are strung on black or brown polished leather.
The "Special Collection" and "Mermaid" pieces still have the look that my pieces are known for but will have a really unusual, rare, or extra element. They're a little fancier than the regular smashed spoon pieces.
My copper and sterling silver pieces are all made entirely by hand from raw metals. I like to incorporate stone beads and crystals into many of these pieces, as well.
