W E L C O M E Here you will find redesigned and upcycled vintage silverware - Handcrafted spoon and fork rings, earrings and hand stamped cutlery and accessories. SOZO Handmade is a reflection of my passions and taste. I have a love for rust and dust, simple living, and words. This affair involves me delving deep into the dusty corners of antique stores, second hand shops and trawling carboots foraging for these sought after objects. Each spoon, fork, spreader and sugar tong is then either handstamped or handsawn; hammered, filed, bent and polished by my own hands in my home studio located in South Devon. As most items are made with vintage pieces, there are no two alike. I carefully choose my vintage silverware at second hand shops and antique markets. The cutlery will show signs of it's past which adds charm and character and brings an old piece of silverware back to life! I have a ZERO waste policy, after I have turned spoon handles into rings or fork tines into earrings, I use the remainder for herb markers, earrings or key rings. Everything in my shop is vegan. I use microfibre for my necklaces. All earring hooks are sterling silver and I use sterling silver or rubber hypoallergenic earring backs. I hope that the quotes will bring as much joy to everyone who receives them as it does me creating them for you! . . S H I P P I N G... I offer FREE worldwide shipping on everything in the shop. UK shipping is sent by Royal Mail Second Class and overseas will take 3-6 days on average. . . B E S P O K E - S I L V E R W A R E... . . Having a piece of silverware specially made is one of the great pleasures of life. Commission something unique that will last for generations, and turn your sentimental family silverware into something beautiful to wear.

Description

I have hand crafted this ring from a sterling Silver Spoon.

Spoon rings are a symbol of independence and resourcefulness.

This spoon shows signs of its past. Spoon rings were first made in 17th century England as wedding rings 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 give to their love as a marriage proposal. Thus, the earliest spoon rings served as symbols of love and commitment, in defiance of strict social and economic barriers. Ever since these times, spoon rings have been a timeless and unique gift of love, a wonderful piece of heritage not forgotten.

Thank you for stopping by.

Love and light ✨
