The Tree spoon Teaspoon

“On this occasion i have attempted to capture the love and feeling of Autumn and Winter using a Victorian silver teaspoon! All of the teaspoons and silver cutlery i use to make my work are individual items which have been unloved and unappreciated. It is made with green sensibilities and ethics, appropriate for such designs! The overall aim is to transform each spoon into something lovely and desireable, with a new life ahead of it! ” – The Growler.

Style of charm

Recycled silver Victorian teaspoon

This spectacular little silver tree is an inspired design, celebrating my love of Autumn and Winter. After the blossoms of summer and beautiful green sensory overload it is mesmerising to see our trees becoming stripped down and naked. The natural form of an autumn / winter tree is perfect.

On this occasion i have attempted to capture the love and feeling of Autumn and Winter using a Victorian silver teaspoon! All of the teaspoons and silver cutlery i use to make my work are individual items which have been unloved and unappreciated! These loose items are then ‘swept’ up in house clearance deals, generally be antiques dealers. They are then destined to be ‘melted down’ for their silver content as they are generally classed as undesireable due to not being in a set of six or twelve. It is these ‘lost’ pieces of historic and beautiful silverware i choose to ‘save’ from the melting pot.

It is made with green sensibilities and ethics, appropriate for such designs! The overall aim is to transform each spoon into something lovely and desireable, with a new life ahead of it!

Once the tree has been cut and carved (also using traditional hand tools and methods!) i then wrap the handle to form the ‘bale’. This wrapped handle bale is a lovely feature and means that the ‘whole spoon’ is used to create the piece. The necklace then becomes a fabulous piece of jewellery to wear, ‘show off’ and talk about.

    A great idea!

    Such a great idea to use an original part of the spoon and apply to the newly created piece of jewellery, amazing idea!
