Announcement   Hi! It's summer, so I will be ramping up production of jewelry again. Check back or drop me a message if you want a specific piece made for you. Thanks!

Due to my working schedule, all messages get answered in the evenings, M-F.

**Lately, there are a lot of customers ordering a regular spoon, and then requesting it be customized with different words. I am happy to do this, but this qualifies as a CUSTOM LISTING and needs to be ordered as such, as the price and production time is different. CUSTOM STAMPED SPOONS can be found here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/91201641/custom-hand-stamped-spoon-one-vintage?ref=shop_home_active_20
Thanks!

***My spoon jewelry is made from GENUINE pieces of antique (100+ years) and vintage (20+ years) silverplated flatware that we search for all over New England- at estate sales, antique shows, antique shops, and flea markets. That may seem like an obvious thing to say, but there are some businesses that make replicated spoon jewelry (i.e. "vintage inspired"). This is the real thing - a genuine and beautiful little piece of history to wear and enjoy! I also do not re-plate them - they are merely polished to a high gleam, and just gorgeous!

I use all professional jeweler's equipment, including ring mandrels for an accurate fit. All of our spoon rings are able to be sized either up or down by a 1/2 size. If you need it smaller or larger by a HALF SIZE ONLY, let me know in the message to seller box at checkout, and I will do it free of charge. If you need bigger or smaller than that, send me a convo. We may be able to make you one!

If you have a coupon, here is how to use it:
TO USE YOUR COUPON CODE: when you check out, about an inch above the green paypal button, it will say in blue "Apply shop coupon code." Click that and enter your code! NOT in the 'note to seller' box - that will not apply the discount. Thank you!

This product is very charming, I love it. But this is the second time I buy a spoon and it didn't arrive when I was expecting. First time there was a problem after the item was shipped, and this time the product was shipped 11 business days after purchase. So, If it is supposed to be a gift, I recommend you to buy something else.

About

Taking forgotten pieces of the past and turning them into modern treasures.

Hello! Welcome!

Olive Spoon Studio came about from a combination of my wife's love of antique silverware, and my love of upcycling. We both love the thrill of the hunt, scouring antique shops, flea markets, and fairs all over New England for old flatware.We are fascinated by the beauty and artistry of antique flatware, and rescuing it from scrap bins to turn it into a new treasure is a joy.

When you buy from Olive Spoon Studio, you are not only supporting handmade, but you are also helping to support one little Rhode Island family of four. We appreciate you more than you know!

Shop policies

Last updated on March 16, 2016
*GIFTS - We ship stamped flatware wrapped in colored tissue paper. We ship jewelry in gift boxes. We are also happy to include your own words in a note with the order - just ask!

*RESIZING - All of our spoon rings are able to be sized either up or down by a 1/2 size. If you need it smaller or larger by a HALF SIZE ONLY, let us know in the message to seller box at checkout, and we will do it free of charge. No rings can be made any larger than a half size. Resizing takes an additional day or two to ship out.

Bracelets can always be made smaller - just ask! Resizing bracelets takes an additional day or two to ship out.

*SIZING - Please note that most spoon rings are fairly wide, so if you get your finger measured by a jeweler, ask them for the wide ring sizers. Also, keep this in mind when ordering your size. If you are inbetween sizes, (meaning, for example, you wear between a 7 and a 7.5) I recommend ordering the larger size.

*VINTAGE SILVERPLATE- Because the spoons are vintage, please be aware that they will show their past history in little scratches and marks. But that is part of the charm of it! In some cases, the silverplating may be a bit worn as well (we will note that in the description, and the price will reflect that as well), so make certain you do not have any metal allergies if you are buying a discounted ring or bracelet. ALL of our jewelry is silverplated. If you are a person with a base metal sensitivity, our jewelry may not be the best choice for you. People with strong reactions to copper will even react to 14 K gold. Our jewelry is silverplated, and the thickness of the plating varies by manufacturer (of the spoons) and by age. Most people, however, have no issues.

*STAMPING - Please allow for little inconsistancies in letter placement and depth, as that is the nature of hand stamping. And remember - they are vintage and will show their past lives in little marks and scratches. I do, however, pick the best I can find for stamping.
Unlike engraving, stamping does not damage the silver plating on the spoon. Stamping merely causes depressions, whereas engraving cuts into the metal.
If you plan on eating with your stamped silverware (which is fine), please wash before first use to remove any polishing residue, as they mail out to you freshly polished.

Shipping
SHIPPING UPGRADES - Regular production times still apply. If you purchase Priority Mail or Express (overnight) mail, it will still take 3-5 days for PRODUCTION time. Actual shipping time will be either 2-3 days (Priority) or overnight (Express).
ETSY APP USERS: You need to purchase the shipping upgrade separately, as the app does not offer upgrades.

We ship to your Etsy address, so please make certain it is current. In the event that the post office cannot deliver your item to the address you provided, we will ask for additional shipping charges before resending. If you choose to cancel the sale, we will refund you minus shipping charges.

In an effort to save paper, we no longer include a packing slip with the order, with the following exceptions: wholesale orders to retail shops, and shipments to GERMANY, PORTUGAL and SPAIN, (packing slip in sleeve on outside of package) in accordance to their customs rules. Otherwise, if you want/need a packing slip, please let me know, and I will include one.

We ship within the stated timeframe with the following exceptions:
- Resizing, please allow a few extra days prior to shipping.
- eCheck payments ship out after the check clears, which may take up to a week.

USA: We ship USPS first class, with delivery confirmation.

We will mark your order as shipped on "Your Account" page once it has shipped out, as well as send you a shipping confirmation email with your tracking number.

International orders:
**PLEASE PROVIDE YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS IN ROMAN LETTERS AND ARABIC NUMERALS. We can put your name and address in your own language on the package, but US Customs requires name and addresses to be written in the Roman alphabet and Arabic numerals on the customs forms. Thanks!
***PLEASE NOTE: *** Know your country’s Customs Regulations. *** Buyers are responsible for any duties, taxes, or fees imposed beyond the US postage that we pay when shipping.
We ship internationally by USPS First Class. There is no way to track your package this way. If you wish faster delivery and tracking, you may upgrade your shipping to Priority International. First class International delivery typically takes 2 - 4 weeks, not including the extra time if a package is held up in customs. We will mark your order as "Shipped" on your account page once it goes out, and you will receive your customs form number via email which tracks your package to its last stop within the US, at which point tracking ceases.

WE WILL NOT FALSIFY CUSTOMS FORMS. Please do not ask it of us!
Marking your shipment as a "gift", or writing a lower value of the items, is not only unethical, it is illegal and carries hefty penalties and fines. Thank you!
Refunds and Exchanges
We want you to be happy!! If you are not pleased with your purchase*(see below), please notify us by convo (NOT email) within 3 days of receipt (time exceptions applied to Christmas gifts), and we will offer you either an exchange or a refund. Shipping charges are not refundable and return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. You will receive your refund/exchange AFTER the item has been returned to us.
**If you are exchanging for a different item, or a different size, you may either include $3 CASH (no checks) in with your return to cover the new shipping charges, or we can send you an invoice through Paypal.
*There are no returns on unaltered vintage silverware ("Antique Silverware" section).
*There are no returns on custom stamped silverware, UNLESS I have made a spelling error in the stamping. If that is the case, I will remake and send your order at no charge to you.
