How does someone become a creator of silverware jewelry?
I'm sure every silverware jeweler has their own story. Mine actually starts behind a camera.
I had begun selling my photography in 2013. As a member of the local art guide in Florida, I had my fine art photographs in numerous art shows and galleries. I also had begun transforming my pictures into greeting cards.
I found a creative way to display these greeting cards- FORK EASELS!
When our family moved to Missouri a few years ago, I began looking for new local shops to sell my prints and cards in. One shop owner was intrigued by the fork easels and asked if I could create a "spoon bracelet" for her.
Always up for a challenge, I began looking into silverware jewelry!
After much trial and error, I was able to create that 1st bracelet. I have to admit, I knew immediately that this was an art that I loved. Soon I was hunting down all the silverware I could find, and eventually one of our bedroom became my first studio!
As the studio has been upgraded, transformed, changed locations, and grown over the years, so has my love of this craft!
