About

Bend it like Doctor Gus!

I'm Doctor Gus and welcome to my shop!

Here you can find a complete line of recycled antique sterling silver plated spoon jewelry. I have spoon rings, twisted fork pendants, and so much more in store.

I'm all about living a sustainable, recycled and eco-friendly lifestyle. But that doesn't mean you can't look good at the same time.

I use a variety of metalworking techniques in my pieces. I cut, bend, twist, and hammer away on long forgotten items in order to form them into a new visual language. These parts are then soldered and wired into new jewelry assemblages incorporating antique and salvaged details.

My favorite materials are antique pieces of silverware, watch parts, coins, and bullets. These once commonplace items are often overlooked or even discarded. Yet they do have an inherent functional elegance to them.

My work attempts to coax new imagery from the mundane. I enjoy taking everyday objects and turning them into something completely different. Call it recycling, call it repurposing, call it eco-chic, or just call it clever. I get great sense of satisfaction from giving new life to some otherwise neglected object. I love that moment of realization i see on a person's face when they come over to look at a cool shiny thing and figure out that it is actually an antique fork!

Browse around my shop, feel free to ask me any questions you have. If you don't see what you are looking for then send me a message, but remember that one-of-a-kind items are hard to keep in stock!
