History of Silverware Jewelry
The history of turning silverware into jewelry is quite unknown. One, however, might reminded particularly about the popularity of spoon rings during the 60’s and 70’s. Many individuals can recall owning at least one of these artistic pieces as they represented a loving touch and gave a girl a sense of simplicity and individualism. Since then, the popularity has inspired the creativity of many jewelry artisans and enthusiasts to create not only rings, but bracelets, necklaces, earrings, brooches, and other accessories.
Hi, my name is Pam Wilson. I have been a jewelry artisan for over 20 years and this is my story of how Forkedelic was born. My family has had a long-standing tradition of doing Spring cleaning together during the Easter holiday as all the kids will be home to offer a helping. During one our annual spring cleaning in 2010, I stumbled upon a set of antique silverware which were given to our family from my late mother-in-law. With my daughter’s 16th birthday coming up in the next month, I decided I wanted to give her a special present that also served as a remembrance for her late grandmother whom she had a close bond with. The following day, I put my jewelry making skills to work and made my first antique silverware jewelry, a spoon bracelet, for the most special girl in my life, my daughter. Later that year, on one summer day, I decided to form Forkedelic to share with others the loving and warmth touch in these jewelries.
I hope you enjoy checking our silverware jewelries that are ‘crafted with memories’.
