About

I have always been fascinated by items from a bygone era and whilst reading a book about Georgian and Victorian Table etiquette I stumbled upon the overwhelming types of cutlery and tableware they used.

Today we usually have just one set of cutlery and maybe one for ‘best’ when the in-laws come around; but in the past they had an item of cutlery for anything and everything from an tiny egg spoon to an Asparagus Tongs, a fruit knife to a Berry Ladle ( My prized possession is a 19th century silver plated sandwich scissors!) These no longer have a place in the modern home but it saddened me that they would be left idle in a dusty box under the stairs, it was this that prompted me to rejuvenate these once loved possessions into items that would be treasured once more.

I have spent the last 8 years in a ‘career break’ from management while I bring up my two boys. Although I haven’t been completely idle for that time turning my hand to many different crafts including silversmithing, painting, illustration, photography (which secured me a place in a local gallery exhibition) and with a good friend set up an art gallery for up and coming artists.

When I first heard of Etsy back in 2009 I thought that it was too good to be true! An enormous web site dedicate to art, craft and generally wonderfully creative people, Woo Hoo! My initial trepidation about selling online was immediately quashed by the lovely community and support here on Etsy and I haven’t looked back since.

My days of working in management for someone else are far behind me and now I manage me, my cutlery and my home.
