Announcement   I'll Be out of town From June 27th to July 7th. All orders will not be shipped until I return.

Each one of these beautiful spoon rings, bracelets and bell pendents are handmade by me from real vintage silverware in my cozy yellow home. I have been in the business of crafting quality silverware jewelry for over 6 years and I am passionate about my job. I hope you enjoy shopping in my store as much as I enjoyed smithing each spoon into a work of art!

Almost all of my rings can go up or down 1/2 to 1/4 of a size. For instance if you're a 6 in thin banded rings and you want a 6.5 you can choose from sizes 6 or 7. Be sure to let me know you want the size moved you can leave me a note in the "note to seller' box when you check out. These rings are sturdy and not something that can bent easily without proper tools.

If you don't know your ring size I would highly suggest getting to a jeweler or a jewelry section of a store and ask to use their Wide ring sizer. There are handy ways to measure online however they come with mixed results.

To measure your wrist for bracelet size use a flexible measuring tape, a thin piece of string, or a thin strip of paper. Measure just above (towards elbow) the wrist bone, then add 1/4" to 1/2'' depending on how tight you like your bracelets to fit. That is the size of bracelet you would wear.

About

Creating a Beautiful Life, One Spoon At a Time

Together with my wife 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

Last updated on November 7, 2014
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!

Each Vintage spoon or fork is unique some very well worn, some almost untouched by the passing of time. I take a unique photo of every spoon ring and bracelet. The item you are buying is the one in the photos. All of my items are pre-made, so what you see is what you are getting.

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!

Payment
HOW CAN I PAY?
I accept payment through Etsy's direct checkout, a safe way for you to pay with a credit or debit card. I also accept Pay Pal, Money orders or personal checks.

If you have any questions about payment, please contact me through Etsy. During weekdays I respond to convos very quickly.
Shipping
HOW DO YOU SHIP THINGS?
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). I do this to save my customers money. Your item will be shipped within two days of your order date.

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 can take no responsibly for items lost in the mail.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS
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 in the mail.

WHAT IF I NEED SOMETHING TO SHIP FAST?
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.

HOW SOON DO YOU SHIP AFTER I BUY SOMETHING?
I love going to the post office and visiting with my postal pals! So I go every weekday (Monday - Friday) the post office is open. You package will get mailed the day you order or the day after you order and pay. Please buy the extra shipping 'feathers' if you need your artwork to arrive sooner. http://tinyurl.com/7kmnxe6

I pack my items with lots of love, but can not take responsibility for damage that may happen in transit.

LOST PACKAGES
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.

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS :WILL I HAVE TO PAY CUSTOMS CHARGES WHEN MY PACKAGE ARRIVES?

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.

The majority of my International customers do not pay customs fees, but it does happen.
Refunds and Exchanges
WHAT IF MY RING OR BRACELET DOES NOT FIT?
I can make small adjustments in the sizes of most rings. Please convo me if your jewlery does not fit and I will let you know if the size can be changed on your item. There may be a small shipping fee. Better yet, double check your size at a jewlery counter before ordering, they will have the knowlage and tools to get your proper size.

DO YOU EXCEPT RETURNS?
Yes. If you want to return something, first let me know. Then you can ship it back to me using First Class mail. I will refund your money as soon as I receive the item back and see that it is in good shape.

CAN I EXCHANGE MY RING FOR ANOTHER ONE ON YOUR SITE?
I always prefer to issue a refund. You are welcome to buy the new item but for my record keeping, I would rather refund your money and have you make a new purchase.


RETURNING SOMETHING THAT WAS GIVEN AS A GIFT?
If you need to exchange a piece that was given to you as a gift, or need a gift re-sized, the gift giver must contact me. I can only except resizing or exchanges from the person who bought the original piece. No returns are accepted from the gift recipient because I have no way of knowing if the item was purchased from me. In other words, I don't want to be refunding money for a spoon ring that was purchased at another Etsy store. Because that is just silly!
Additional policies and FAQs
RESERVED LISTINGS
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.

WHOLESALE AND CONSIGNMENT
I occasionally do wholesale and consignment. If you would like to wholesale or consign with me please tell me where to find information about your business, who you are, and how to reach you. I prefer to work through email or etsy convos.
