About MarchelloArt

On Etsy since 2010

Fork bracelets, spoon rings and a greener world.

I began my artistic expedition in 2010 by following the footsteps of my dad, who started developing the process of turning silverware into art many years before that. Together, we tweaked and developed the tools and techniques that allow me to achieve the designs you see today.

My inspiration is derived from the damage caused by our culture of disposable products that makes things to be used up and thrown away, just so another has to be bought. This is incredibly wasteful and destructive. I aim to inspire people to reconsider this with my silverware jewelry by revealing the beauty that still remains within objects that are often considered used. This reveal is quite dramatic with silver plate because when it sits unloved, it becomes tarnished and dirty. However, when cleaned up and transformed into something new, the exquisite character of the piece is brought anew.

Many companies saw the desire of consumers to become greener and make packaging recyclable in an effort to fill this aspiration. The issue is that plastics can only be recycled a few times before they degrade into too low of a quality to be used. The motto ‘reduce, reuse, recycle’ is important to remember. Recycle is last on the list because it’s the last resort. However, manufacturers don’t make as much money when consumers are reducing or reusing consumption so they push the recyclability of the packaging as the green solution. The real solutions are reducing and reusing. That’s why all my products are a journey of reusing by recreating old, disregarded things into new creations that keep the legacy of the original item while still uncovering something new.

When you buy a piece from Marchello Art you are helping create a world with more sustainable products. By reusing vintage silverware into jewelry, we are also bypassing the need to mine new metals for jewelry use. This leads to the most sustainable jewelry available. Thanks for helping create a more sustainable product life cycle!

Payment Deadlines - Please make your payment along with the checkout process so that you can receive your purchase as soon as possible. If you pay immediately, your purchase will be shipped immediately. I will allow up to 3 days from the time of your purchase until payment is due without questions. If you need longer than 3 days, please let me know and I can put your order on hold for you until you are ready to pay.

Shipping

Shipping Method - The shipping costs that are standard on every item are for USPS First Class Mail. Shipping time is 2-5 days for domestic orders (inside the United States). For international orders (outside the United States), the time will vary. Typically, it takes about 3-4 weeks, but it can take longer depending on location.

Shipping Upgrades - If you would like, you can upgrade your shipping to USPS Priority or USPS Express Mail. Please contact me about extra costs and expected delivery times if you would like to upgrade your shipping.

Delivery Confirmation - Delivery confirmation is included with every purchase. Please understand that delivery confirmation is not the same as full tracking. Sometimes the package will get scanned at every stop along the way so you will be able to track it, but sometimes it will not get scanned until it is delivered. If you want full tracking, please contact me.

International Orders (outside of the United States) - Please understand that MarchelloArt is not responsible for any import taxes or duties that may come with your shipment. It is the buyers responsibility to know any local taxes that may apply.

Additional policies and FAQs

I can make just about anything out of recycled forks, spoons and knives. Feel free to submit custom orders. I also do wholesale and consignment work. If you are interested in either of these, please contact me.

My work is of very high quality and, as long as you take care of it, it will last a life time. Silver-plated silverware is very strong. You will not have to polish any of my non-jewelry items since they are sprayed with a clear acrylic coating that prevents tarnish from forming.

Thank you!

Sizing details

Ring sizes are standard US sizes and hinged bracelet sizes are listed with each bracelet.

Care instructions
