“Finding new opportunities for creativity in my 60s by repurposing antique silverware”. Got to make a living, might as well LOVE what you do!

Losing a corporate job after 24 years gave me a window of opportunity to do what I really always loved, being creative in the arts. With a lifetime of ideas in my mind, I have been able to create wearable art that is unique, beautiful and at the same time feel good about socially contributing to recycling and repurposing material otherwise considered old, unusable or trash. Antique, broken, vintage silverware and jewelry gets new life to be admired, used and appreciated again. Devoting full time to my business has been challenging but very rewarding. I believe in the saying " If you love your job you never really work a day in your life". I am so very grateful for the support of my family and friends who have encouraged me and help promote my creations. Positive recognition of my creations has been both humbling and energizing to my creative process. I want to make things that "I" would love to have and wear and I believe that keeps my focus on beautiful design and quality work.....not just what will sell. In the process my late husband, George discovered a new talent to create custom whimsical figures that were a huge hit with our customers. Unfortunately, I lost him in November, 2018 and only then realized what a "bigger than life" part he was to our business and our customers. I hope to be able to continue to bring you more creations to enjoy and honor his memory, lifelong support, sense of humor and loving partnership as long as I am able.

Welcome to Shecre8s where antique and vintage silverware gets new life as wearable, functional or whimsical art without the use of chemicals, heat or other additives. Our work is created the old fashioned way, cut and turned by hand and then buffed to its original beautiful finish. I work alone and make everything I sell. this is my full time job to support myself through my retirement years. I hope you share my passion of up cycling otherwise unused and/or discarded silverware, wood and other found objects to new life.

Follow SheCre8s on Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for new work and a schedule of selling events.

Additional policies and FAQs
I am committed to providing a quality, unique work of art. Although most of the silverware used is fine silverplated and manufactured to be around forever, unfortunately my findings, clasps etc. are today's findings and as most things made today will eventually age. I will, however, always rework a bracelet with new findings at minimal cost to renew your piece.

Our show prices are extremely affordable and although we do wholesale there is still plenty of room for a profitable wholesale agreement. You may contact me at 215 806-1008 for a wholesale discussion.

Thanks for your interest and for your support of independent artists.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

Your repurposed silverware jewelry is very easy to maintain. Occasional use of a silver cloth such as a jewelry rouge cloth or a sunshine cloth for silver will bring your silverware back to the shine you had when you purchased it. If you prefer to let it patina naturally, you can just occasionally clean it with toothpaste and dry thoroughly if you need to remove everyday oils from lotions, sunscreens and sweat. As a last resort for heavily tarnished pieces, you can use a liquid tarnish remover by sipping your piece, shwish it around, then “thoroughly” rinse with cold water and “thoroughly” dry!

Custom and personalized orders

If you would like something made out of your own silverware you can contact me and leave a message at 215-806-1008. Aside from a $10 custom upcharge per order the price per item would run roughly the same as listed for that item in my shop.

There is no upcharge if you just need something from my pattern inventory sized or modified.
