Announcement I hand stamp with my hammer & die each and every letter individually. Each piece of silverware has been recycled. I choose the best available pieces but some may have added character from their previous life. This adds to the charm with love. If there’s something special I can make for you don’t hesitate to message me. I love custom designs.

my busy empty nest
I always thought as I got older things would slow down but, that's just not the case. I'm busier now than ever and I wouldn't have it any other way!
I'm an empty nester having raised 2 amazing children. Now I reap the benefits to being a grand mom to 3 free spirited grand daughters.
Gypsy Roots Designs gives me the freedom to play with my creative side. I have a lot of fun hunting for vintage silver ware. I love that each piece has a history and a past life. I really enjoy the thought process of how I'm going to upcycle each piece into something new & beautiful. It really brings me so much joy seeing someone wear a piece of my art because there's so much of me that goes into each & every thing I make.
The name Gypsy Roots was derived from the results of my heritage DNA test results. I knew very little about my bloodlines so, my daughter bought me a DNA kit and I recently learned my ancestors were from Croatia & Romania hence the name Gypsy Roots Designs.

All my creations are made from vintage silverware silver or silver plated unless otherwise noted. If you have a metal allergy I cannot guarantee you will not have a reaction bc vintage silver plate has numerous metal base combinations and i cannot verify each one.
All of my items are one of a kind hand made. If you want multiples I can made a similar piece with slight variations.
Custom and personalized orders
Unfortunately, I cannot stamp on both sides because there's often a slight distinct impression on the backside from the force of the stamping tools. As such I only stamp on one side.
All pieces are 100% made by me, no 2 items are identical. Some may not be perfectly aligned but, that adds to the charm & uniquness of each item. I use vintage flatwear That being said, I choose the nicest pieces avail.Because they're vintage and have had a past life they may have some loss of plate,dings & scratches. There will be slight variations and will have different degrees of patina for a truely vintage vibe.
