I have always been interested in the arts, painting, serigraphy, and sculpturing. I also make jewelry with spoons and forks with old silverware. Fifteen years ago, I first discovered this kind of jewelry after viewing a picture of Jimi Hendrix brandishing a silver spoon ring. I started searching for more information about this. Between working at two jobs, I started learning how to make simple rings from cutlery. I asked my friend Ralph to make me a tool to allow me to easily turn my forks and spoons into beautiful rings. It is very easy to be creative with this kind of cutlery and you maintain the intrinsic beautiful of their very nature.

It is great to use silverware from the 1800s to 1930s to make new wearable jewelry. It is an adventure searching flea markets trying to find unique pieces.
