Creating a Beautiful Life, One Spoon At a Time

I am creating a beautiful life on my own terms. I began my journey as a serious artist six years ago and my passion for creating is forever growing.

In the Spring of 2006 I quit my heartless factory job. I got so fed up with the way corporations treat human beings I threw my work boots in the river and promised myself I would never again spend my days doing something I hate.
I suppose my boots are somewhere floating in the gulf by now, or perhaps mulch for a weeping willow.

Now I am running my own business, using my creative energy to create beautiful, unique jewelry that will make the person wearing it feel wonderful.

I am driven by the desire to share the stories of discarded silverware. Bringing them alive again making vintage silverware something to be cherished and used again. I also love restoring abandoned cars, old bikes and anything rusty!

Once at a flea market, I found an old spoon with lots of visible wear on one side of its bowl and I couldn't help wondering who owned that spoon and how many homemade meals they must have eaten with it. Moments like that remind me how awe inspiring the circular flow of energy is our universe. I hope to express this flow in all of my work.

    I quit my corporate factory job and started Dank Artistry in 2006. Everyday since then has been exciting, rewarding and fulfilling.

Shop policies

Thanks for looking at my policies, you are an A+ customer!

I aim to please here, this is my shop, my job, and my life. I'd rather work for my customers than a boss any day!

Need a spoon ring in a half size? choose the next lowest size. For example, if you need an 8.5, buy the size 8 and tell me in the message to seller box you need a half size bigger. I can resize most of my pieces a half size in any direction, free of charge.

Let me know if you want a bracelet in a different size, I can make them larger by adding jumprings. Making them smaller is harder, but ask me about it and I can tell you if I can make it smaller or not.

I do not have the tools or skills to do engraving. All of my monogrammed pieces were monogrammed by there previous owners. Other questions? Convo me!

If you have any questions about payment, please contact me through Etsy. During weekdays I respond to convos very quickly.
I ship all items First Class mail at the USPS in a padded mailer. First class mail is very reasonably priced for such fast shipping (most items arrive within 3-9 business days). Your order will be shipped that same day (if ordered before 4pm CST) or the next business day.

TRACKING- After your order is shipped my shipping elves will email you a tracking number. A tracking number does not mean your item can not get lost. I am NOT responsible for delayed, lost or damaged items. If you have a delayed, lost or damaged item please contact your local post office for more information. I do my very best getting my items out on time. Once they enter the mailbox, they become the property of the post office until they arrive at your door.

DUE TO COVID, EXPECT 4-6 WEEKS FOR DELIVERY!!!! I can not track most international orders. If you live in a country other then the United states, I have no way of finding out were your package is. I can take no responsibly for items lost or delayed in the mail.

If you need something quickly, you can upgrade your shipping to priority or express. Both options are available in the "Gift Wrapping/Shipping" section of my site. The link is here- http://tinyurl.com/7kmnxe6

Here are you options:
Express is more the 'overnight' type shipment, it takes 1-2 days and requires someone to sign for it. If you miss the package, it will be sent to post office for you to pick up. Let me know if you will not be around and want the Express package left on your doorstep. Express costs 18.85

Priority shipping takes 2-4 days. No one has to sign for priority. It costs 5.35.

I love going to the post office and visiting with my postal pals! I mail items daily, except Sundays of course. I pack my items with lots of love, but can not take responsibility for delayed, lost or damages to packages that may happen in transit.

If your package does not arrive in 3-9 days, it does not mean that it is lost. Sometimes packages get re-routed to the wrong post office and end up in weird places before the get to you I have no control over the packages once they leave my hands. All shipments to the U.S. will have a tracking number, please check your email to find that tracking number.

A tracking number does not mean your item can not get lost in the mail. Please note that I take no responsibly for items lost in the mail.

I CAN NOT TRACK INTERNATIONAL PACKAGES. If you live in a country other then the United states, I have no way of finding out where your package is.

If you do have a package that is lost, I am sorry, lost packages are one thing I just don't have any control of.


You may be charged by your countries customs office. You are responsible for all charges. I will not refund your charges. If you do not want to pay the custom's fees when your package arrives, take it back to your post office and refuse the package before opening it. It will be sent back to me and I will refund you for the items purchaser as soon as I receive it back in one piece. Contact me if you have other questions about this.
Additional policies and FAQs
If I make a special item for you or hold an item for you I will put it up as a reserved listing. It would be cool if you would buy that special item within 48 hours. If that does not work for you, please let me know. I don't mind holding onto things for a reasonable amount of time.
