Years ago, my mother dropped one of her wedding silver spoons down the disposal. The handle survived the mishap, and so I made a ring out of it to cheer her up. Soon, I had a backlog of orders from friends and family. I've been upcycling silverware into jewelry ever since. It's been an interesting creative journey for me as my focused has moved from simple rings to the intricate fretwork designs that I hand pierce into spoon bowls.
