This week we are featuring a wonderful husband and wife team, Tim and Veralyn of SilverSpoonCreations! We love the innovative ways in which they use vintage spoons and the beautiful pieces they make by re-imagining old flatware. Check out their story!
“Welcome to our World of Silver Spoon Creations! We are a husband and wife team of 42 Years, and love working together…from strategizing and planning new designs, creating, shipping, and making new friends in Etsy!
Our Shop began when one day we realized that a Beautiful Piece of Jewelry could be created from an Old Piece of Silverplate Flatware! We put our heads together to come up with Designs for our Jewelry, Figure out the best ways to Clean and Polish the Flatware (we find it very old and very tarnished!), Learned new Jewelry Making Skills, Purchased a few necessary Tools for the job, then Created and Fabricated other necessary Tools to perfect our Jewelry….and the next thing we knew: “SilverSpoonCreations” was “Open For Business”!!
We LOVE working together!! Our whole “Life Story” has been together….so taking that into our Business is just a Natural Daily part of Who we are and What we do:) We have a Wonderful Family, very Supportive with Great Input, and we are Blessed to be ‘Papa and Gran’ to Six Awesome Grandkids!!
Tim spends most of his day in the Shop: Custom Engraving the Spoon Pieces, then Cutting, Filing, Bending, Buffing, Drilling, Cleaning, Polishing…and putting all the Jewelry Pieces together! It is quite a process, I must say!!
Veralyn spends most of her day: Listing new items, Communicating with our Customers, Buying Supplies for the Business, Packaging up all the Jewelry Pieces for Shipping, Printing Labels, and Dashing to the Post Office every day before they close!!
We Love the ‘Treasure Hunt’ in trying to find New and Unique Vintage Silverware!! We Love Strategizing and coming up with New Jewelry Ideas! Some work, some do not…but the process is fun! All in all, we are Blessed to have a Shop that we have filled with Handmade Jewelry where people from all over the world can come to view and purchase!”
