Announcement   ***WE INSURE ALL PACKAGES (Domestic & International)*** We sell PREMIUM High Quality Made Silverware Jewelry, WEDDING MR. and MRS. FORKS, plus unique silverware creations like Hand Stamped Spoons and Forks, PLUS Rings, Bracelets, Earrings and Pendants that will make fabulous keepsakes and heirloom pieces. WE SHIP M-F. CUSTOM ORDERS MAY TAKE AN EXTRA 2-3 DAYS.

We hope you love your vintage piece ~ ♥ ~ But if you don't, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE CONTACT US FIRST BEFORE YOU WRITE YOUR REVIEW. WE WILL TRY AND CORRECT THE PROBLEM YOU HAVE WITH THE PIECE. We will either remake it or refund your purchase. WE WANT YOU TO LOVE IT!

♥ ♥ ALL of our silverware is created using non-toxic methods, and therefore all of our pieces are meant for daily use, not just for display.♥ ♥

We are a Husband and Wife team and take pride in making HIGH QUALITY "USA made" Mr.and Mrs. forks, jewelry, cheese marker forks and other items from "USA made" Vintage Silverware. On rare occasions we will use a foreign maker (ie: German, Russian) of Vintage Silverware. We always list the country the vintage silverplate was made in. Pam purchases, cleans and picks out the pattern of silverware to be made into a specific ring, bracelet, pendant, earrings, Mr.& Mrs. Forks, Key Holders, etc. Gary cuts, drills, shapes and polishes the piece. Pam then takes the photos and lists the items. ♥ ♥

We have added a "Beaded & Leather Jewelry" Section. Please take a peek! Our lampwork bead jewelry is made with borosilicate (boro) glass lampwork beads or with Italian Moretti, Italian Murano or German Lauscha glass lampwork beads that have been created by some very gifted glass artists. The beads they make are truly "one of a kind" because each bead is created one at a time. No two beads are exactly alike and each is a miniature work of art.

♥ ♥ ♥ IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT HAND STAMPING: Our silver plate silverware is hand stamped with each letter or number stamped one at a time. The letters & numbers will not be perfectly straight nor perfectly lined up, even though we do our best to achieve perfection.(smile). Each blow of the hammer leaves an impression and it may be a lighter or a deeper impression with each hit.
P.S. THEY ARE NOT ENGRAVED. ♥ ♥ ♥

PLEASE NOTE: OUR RINGS ARE NOT SELF ADJUSTABLE. WE MUST SIZE THEM TO FIT YOUR DESIRED RING SIZE.

♥ ♥ ♥ We use only .925 Sterling Silver Clasps, Charms, Beads and Headpins, unless otherwise noted. We recently started using Sterling Silver Filled Wire when we wire wrap. Otherwise, the Wire on some pendants will be Silver Plated and tarnish free. Materials are listed in the description. Genuine Pearls and Swarovski Crystals are also used in our Designs. ♥ ♥ ♥

♥ ♥ ♥ We list if a pattern is extremely collectible, highly collectible or just plain collectible. We acquire this information from a book titled "SILVERPLATED FLATWEAR" by Tere Hagan. It is an Identification and Value Guide. ♥ ♥ ♥

♥ ♥ ♥ Sorry, WE DO NOT BARTER.

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ WE ALSO DO NOT SELL WHOLESALE. We want to keep our shop like the 'Mom and Pop Shop' that it is. That allows us to be creative and happy!

Important! Please read the "Shop Policies" so there aren't any surprises! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

This is a beautiful piece. Very well made. I was thrilled to find the bell actually rings and sounds amazing. Couldn't be happier with this purchase.

About

MAKING A PRODUCT FOR OUR ETSY SHOP

We just love creating and making things look good. In our past, we worked with stoneware, earthenware and porcelain clays. Because of our circumstances of moving from Michigan to North Carolina, we had to give up our clay business. We eventually transitioned into making beaded jewelry, and we still do. But that evolved into working with silverware from the past. Our good friend, Kim, who owns a shop in Brevard, approached us about making some silverware bell pendants. We thought it would be fun to try, so we started buying almost every silverware piece in town! Now, we have boxes and boxes of old silverware forks, knives, spoons, butter spreaders and more. Lately, we are having a wonderful time creating stamped pieces. The ideas are endless. We love when customers request a special item to be stamped with their special thoughts. We encourage you to give us even more great ideas! Thanks to Etsy, we have a successful shop and we look forward to making it even more successful. It is our love and our passion in life, second to God, Jesus and The Holy Spirit.

MATERIALS USED
We use vintage USA made silver plated silverware. On rare occasions we will use a foreign maker (ie: German, Russian) of Vintage Silverware. We always list the country the vintage silver plate was made in.
The chains are .925 Sterling Silver, made in the USA, unless otherwise noted.
The French Ear Hooks are .925 Sterling Silver, made in the USA.
The jump rings are Heavy Duty and made by Snapeez (Via Murano) a Colorado USA company. They are electroplated with 99.9% Pure Silver above industry standards.
All lobster claw and foldover clasps (used on the bracelets) are .925 Sterling Silver. The lobster claw clasps are made in Italy. The foldover clasps are made in the USA.

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
SIZING FOR BRACELETS
The general rule for bracelets is that they are 1/2" larger than your wrist to be comfortable.

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR WRIST:
If you have a cloth tape measure, that's great. If not:
Wrap a strip of paper around your wrist (over your wrist bone), use a piece of tape if need be to help hold it still. Mark the paper where it meets, then lay that against a ruler to measure your wrist size. Please add extra if you like the extra wiggle room for your bracelet.

•STORE SILVER IN PLASTIC AIRTIGHT BAGS. THIS REDUCES EXPOSURE TO THE HUMIDITY THAT TARNISHES SILVERWARE AND SILVER. ADD AN ANTI-TARNISH TAB INTO THE BAG FOR EVEN BETTER PROTECTION FROM THE HUMIDITY.
