Recycled soup spoon

This lovely summer leaves tree of life brooch design has been developed and fashioned around the restrictions of using a serving spoon as the raw material. The tree is a vision of a summer approaching. Gorgeous greenery everywhere!

Each brooch is unique, handcrafted and recycled. The outlined design of the tree is sketched onto the spoon. This is then carefully followed with an ultra fine piercing saw blade. Every ‘nook and cranny’ is cut, filed and polished. The end result is quite remarkable.

A wonderfully meaningful and traditional tree of life brooch, completely original and produced with true green principles, ethics and belief.

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 beautiful and fresh summer leaves tree of life brooch with fantastic credentials and a super conversation piece. Handmade and recycled in Cambridge.
