Over the years I have found a variety of beautiful antique and vintage Sterling spoons and forks. My favorite are the highly detailed floral designs from the Art Nouveau era. I enjoy repurposing them into jewelry pieces, creating several keepsake pieces from loved one’s silverware.
Because I often only use the handle, I am left with the bowl of the spoon or the tines of the fork. Many these are just as ornate as their handles. It would be a shame to let them go to waste…

Under normal circumstances I would be preparing for The Buffalo-Style Garden Art Show held at the Buffalo & Erie county Botanical Gardens.
Here are a few items I created with them in mind…
Although this and many other wonderful summer shows are cancelled this year, I hope to be exhibiting my work later this year. In the meantime, be well and enjoy the summer!
Due to health concerns, my art show schedule is on hold.
Stay healthy my friends and hopefully I will see you in May!
