Recycled antique spoon
Tree brooches have to be one of the most enjoyable items of jewellery i get to create. From the initial seed of the idea, the sketches, fitting the designs around the spoon theme, delicately hand piercing and filing, etc. Its all lovely work and the finished item never fails to please.
Each one of these summer trees is thoughtfully crafted and totally unique. Every tree recycled from an old, unwanted antique spoon. Green principles and ethical considerations, contemporary and wearable.
An integral and interesting part of the brooch is the antique dessert 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, contemporary summer tree brooch with fantastic credentials and a great conversation piece.
Handmade and recycled in Cambridge.
