Each one of these beautiful springtime, ‘tree of life’ brooches is handmade, totally green, completely ethical, 100 % recycled and utterly unique. Old, unwanted antique dessert spoons are transformed using traditional hand tools and a passion for green principles and ethics. Inspired by the beckoning day dreams of spring approaching after an incredibly cold winter!
Each tree is carefully outlined on the surface of the spoon. This is slowly and meticulously followed with a traditional jewellers piercing saw. The final shape is filed and polished to perfection. An old spoon recycled into a gorgeous, wearable brooch.
An integral and interesting part of the brooch is the spoon from which it was cut. This simple ‘donor’ spoon is also given a little ‘Hairy Growler’ treatment. It is transformed in to an wonderful Objects D’ Art which acts a lovely resting place for the brooch when not being worn. Both are presented in a lovely box.
A lovely, whimsical summer blossom tree brooch with wonderful credentials and a great conversation piece. Handmade and recycled in Cambridge.
