The fact that many will want to know: this took 8 days after being shipped to arrive in VA. Seller was very easy to work with and made my date work! My mother was a stickler in knowing the difference between a creamed vs broth based soup spoons. That's what got me to looking at first. I ordered one for my daughter and she was delighted. It is very artfully made - both delicate, yet "solid".

Helen.Silver.Smit.Recreate History

Seeing the beauty in the original and respecting historic craftsmanship, I wish to highlight the value of original design and the beauty of history.

I started creating from a very young age and grew up in a wonderful, "Robertson Crusoe" kind of family.
I originally studied Environmental Management and with my jewellery I can now combine my love for creating, my passion for upcycling and my great interest in culture and history into my unique interpretation of my silverware jewellery.

I live in the beautiful seaside village of Hermanus and am surrounded by natural beauty, mountains and sea - wonderful creative inspiration :) I live with my beautiful man in a happy home and work full time to create and sell my wearable pieces of history.

Through my jewelry, I wish to create pieces which will tell a story of history and beauty to you.
I hope each piece will be a happiness to the wearer - pieces which will always be treasured for their original design and for their refound value and beauty.

Enjoy life.
Enjoy today.
Enjoy HelenSilverSmit.
