About nemeton

Sales 5,858
On Etsy since 2008

Welcome to my world of words, beads and spoons. Not necessarily in that order.

I just love to make things. I used to make them mostly out of glass beads and now I make them mostly out of old cutlery, but the fun is still the same!

Following on from a Dada art event in my home town, for which I was commissioned to help make a range of sonic installations (check out my #DadaGarden tag on Twitter or Facebook), I diversified into upcycling vintage cutlery into wind chimes. Hand stamping and embellishing spoons was just so much fun, I didn't want to stop! Personalised spoons were the logical next step.

My work is very individual and each piece is different, even if the wording is the same. No two vintage spoons are truly identical and I love them because of (not despite) their imperfections. It gives me a real buzz when my creations strike a chord with others and make them laugh too!

I work from home, alternating between a lovely light upstairs room in the winter and a garden shedio in the summer. Both stuffed full of all kinds of crafting materials, pictures, books and hoarded ephemera... It looks like chaos but I do know where (almost) everything is! It inspires me to have lots of beautiful things around me. I am very fortunate.

In my previous incarnation as a bead artist I wrote a beading book, 'Learn to Make Bead Jewellery,' a colourful and friendly guide to stringing and basic wirework for the adventurous beginner. It was published in December 2015 by Kalmbach (US) and Search Press (UK). If you've read it, do let me know what you think and which projects you decided to make.

I still sell beading tutorials, to enable other beaders to have the same sort of fun that I do, combining colours and shapes to make something unique. I never get tired of seeing how each pattern turns out for each maker - very often my customers come up with a colour combination or design tweak that I'd never have thought of. Each of us is unique and that's something to be celebrated!

I Instagram and Pin things sporadically and am also on Facebook, where you can see updates on work-in-progress, find out about forthcoming new designs, benefit from the occasional special offer or sale, and share some of the many fun things I find on my virtual travels around the internet... you'll find me @lynnsbeadypage or click the links below.

    If it fits on a spoon, I can stamp it on a spoon!

Care instructions

The black in the lettering is non-toxic acrylic paint. Hand wash with care and avoid scrubbing too hard.

Where have all the other spoons gone that used to be in this shop?

They've migrated to another platform and you'll find the link under 'shop-website' at the bottom of the 'About nemeton' section. (I can't sell them here any more because currently Etsy doesn't provide fully legal return policy options for UK-only sellers.)
