Bespoke is an adjective for anything commissioned to a particular specification. It may be altered or tailored to the customs, tastes, or usage of an individual purchaser. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bespoke
Custom designing a bespoke piece from your family silver or stainless cutlery is a fantastic way to share and enjoy the old family silverware.
We can make most of the designs available at Spoon Savvy from your own silverware. From coveted spoon rings crafted from teaspoon handles to contemporary earrings made from spoon scoops - imagination and creativity offer endless designs.
The process involves your cutlery being hammered, filed, sanded and buffed with traditional jeweller’s techniques. It is then formed into a spoon/fork ring, bracelet or pendant with a handcrafted tool we like to call the ‘Spoon Tuner’.
Sizing If by chance your ring isn’t the perfect fit – our spoon ring designs can be resized (great to know when gift giving), it’s as simple as popping them in the post with a return envelope & sizing details or taking them to a local jeweller.
To avoid this we provide a pretty savvy ‘ring sizing chart’. It’s straight forward to use and generally provides a very close fit. Other options would be to visit your local jeweller and have the finger you would like the ring to fit sized for a spot on fit.
We work with the European sizing system, where the ring size is depicted with a letter e.g. size Q – We are able to convert other international sizes, although we suggest you utilise our ring sizer chart to achieve a closer fit.
Resizing is free, if you are happy to provide a return prepaid satchel for postage.
Fact Did you know that spoon rings were originally made in 17th century England? Servants unable to afford a ring to wed their lovely, would often pilfer the silver from the manor houses in which they worked to make wedding rings with.
PricingOur designs range from $40 for a single bespoke jewellery design. If ordering Multiple designs of 3 or more we apply a 15% discount. There are also some duo specials available for spoon handle rings with an earring or pendant design available from the remaining spoon bowl.
Choose your design from the Bespoke drop down menu and complete the online order form, we will send you a quote for your selected design, then simply pop your challenge pieces in the post, via registered or express post.
Email us at email@example.com to let us know your spoons are in the post. We’ll have basic orders delivered within approximately 10 days (if you require your order a.s.a.p. don’t hesitate to ask – anything is possible).
Postage Spoon Savvy prefers to use registered or express post for safe postage & delivery of your precious things. It is marginally more expensive, but the benefits are – a tracking number is provided (easier), the items need to be signed for (safer), delivery is receipted, and ultimately no one is put out.
If you choose to post your items via standard post we don’t accept responsibility if the items are lost.
The fine print Thankyou for trusting Spoon Savvy with your treasured items. It is important for us to let you know that although we take great care with your cutlery when making spoon jewellery designs – there is a chance that things can go a little pear shaped e.g. a crack may present in the cutlery. This is a very rare occurrence, and would generally only happen when working with e.p.n.s (silver plated cutlery) If this were to happen – your cutlery would be posted back ‘as is’, and unfortunately we would not be able to complete the design. Can’t say that it’s happened yet – but there’s the fine print, quite boldly, out of the way.
