Your necklace is made to order, and is hand crafted in like style and fashion to the photos in the listings. Like a snowflake, no two are ever exactly alike, and stamping depth and placement may vary ever so slightly with each piece. We do not use a template, and each letter and character is hand stamped one by one. This is what makes them unique...and truly made from the heart!

Our flatware necklaces are made from the tips of spoon and fork handles. All are made from antique or silver plated flatware, and we hand cut each piece. There is amazing beauty in old "silverware" and we never know what treasures we will find in our search for pieces that we can re-purpose into jewelry.

Our bracelets are made from the handles of up cycled antique and vintage silver plated forks and spoons. We are very selective in the patterns we choose, and try to offer many different varieties in style. It is amazing to think of the history behind where this flatware has come and the age behind it. Many of our pieces date back as far as the 1800's!

Each fork and spoon ring is made from the handle of antique or silver plated flatware. We hand cut, anneal, and bend each piece and use a jeweler’s mandrel to form a perfectly round shape - all of the rough edges are smoothed and polished for a brilliant shine. We do keep a large variety of different flatware patterns on hand, and are happy to take custom orders for specific sizes.

Just like our hand stamped necklaces, each key chain is made to order. We proudly offer a variety of styles that you won’t find anywhere else – take a stroll through our selection and you just might find the perfect gift or a fun treasure for yourself. Our fishing lure key chains are our most popular, and we are always adding new styles.

Our hand crafted wind chimes are one of a kind works of art. We take a great deal of pride in the craftsmanship that we offer, and we use only the highest quality of materials in the process. We test each and every one of them in our own yard, and although nothing is meant to withstand a Texas tornado, they have been proven to withstand the wind that we have here in Central Oregon. Close your eyes and image the gentle “ting ting ting a ling” of a gentle breeze passing through the forks, knives, and spoons ... each sounding different in its own special way.

We have a lot of fun on our adventures shopping for our spoon supplies - we call it "junkin" - and each piece that we find has a story behind it. Some come from our Nana's own kitchen - others from garage sales, estate sales, and antique shops. All are vintage or antique and are silver plated. We leave them in their natural state of patina, which adds to their rustic charm. A great re-purposed accent to your garden or a gift for a friend.

We take a great deal of pride in re purposing and up cycling, and these key chains are a true example of what we have done to do our part in utilizing the resources that are all around. The remaining pieces of the spoons that we use will become parts for wind chimes and other garden art that we make. Nothing is wasted, and there is always a creative use for each and every part of the flatware that we have.

These rustic key ornaments are not just for Christmas – many of our customers display them year round in shadow boxes, curio cabinets, or hung on the wall. Our most popular style is made to commemorate the milestone of a new home and is personalized with your address. They make outstanding housewarming gifts too!

We have found a unique way to re-purpose silver plated spoons and knives, and that is to turn them into ornaments. Each is hand stamped - many are personalized - and all come tied with a bow. A fantastic heirloom piece that will be treasured year after year. And just as with all of our other hand stamped items – no machines are ever used. We have unstamped styles too! Just good old fashioned hand crafting at its finest.

Rustic themed weddings have become extremely popular, and a pair of hand stamped cake forks are the ideal accent piece to your cake table. Personalized with your wedding date on the handles, they are a keepsake that we are proud to be a part of. We reserve only our finest forks and servers to be used for these, and each is polished to an absolutely brilliant shine. If you are searching for a one of a kind wedding gift, these are perfect for the bride and groom.

We are a truckin family ourselves, so these pieces hold a special place in our heart. And what makes them even more unique is that each and every one is made right here in the USA by a truck driver! Who would think that the stereotypical "dirty ole' truck driver" could create beautiful works of jewelry and art? Well, here’s the proof that we can and we do!

If you are looking for the trendiest item in our shop, the bangle bracelets are it! We offer them in three different styles – Infinity, Wire Wrapped, and Heart – and in the fashion world, these are a must have. You can choose from a variety of designs and charms, and even add a birthstone crystal.

We welcome you to use your creativity with these forks! They make a fun conversation piece when used on your desktop as a business card holder, but if you think outside the box they have many other uses. Display your photographs, mark a place setting at a formal dinner table, or possibly use them as a recipe card holder. The sky is the limit and no two are ever exactly alike.

We want your order to be exactly as you would like it, so we are always happy to offer upgrades and additions to our work. Maybe an extra crystal, or a special charm, or an upgraded chain is what you need to make it just perfect! In a rush? We offer shipping upgrades too!
