I still have a spoon ring and bracelet from the 70s. My spoon bracelet was given to me by my cousin Nancy for playing at her wedding. The spoon ring was a Christmas gift from Mom and Dad. I selected my silver pattern of Towle King Richard, and these two pieces are still in my box. I treasure them. When I saw the advertisement for Silver Spoon Jewelry, I did a little investigation and found the most wonderful story behind this wonderful business.
Jennifer Northup, founder of Silver Spoon Jewelry, has had a lifelong fascination with antiques and vintage jewelry. Following the inheritance of her great grandmother’s silverware collection, Jennifer and her husband, Daniel, were inspired to design a line of jewelry and accessories based on vintage silverware patterns from the late 1800s and early 1900s.
For 12 years they have been designing and making lovely pieces of jewelry from antique flatware. Once the design is created from original pieces of silver, it is manufactured; and all of the pieces are made in the United States!
Daniel, engineer turned manufacturing expert, works out the designs and oversees the manufacturing. Jennifer handles the marketing and sales for the business, but her love of vintage jewelry remains the inspiration for their products.
Silver Spoon Jewelry can be found in gift stores, galleries, and boutiques throughout the United States and in several countries around the world. Modern style is gracefully blended with the elegance of the past in this unique line.
Each year, 40 new items are introduced and some are retired, but many designs have been in the line since the beginning of their business. “We love giving silver a new life,” Jennifer states, and many people like seeing silver have a new beginning as a piece of jewelry that will be worn and treasured.
They have attended trade shows in Australia, New York, Atlanta, and Paris, but 40 percent of their business comes from their online store. This couple started this business in their garage and is now selling vintage-inspired pieces around the world.
One lucky winner will receive the beautiful Claire watch, inspired by an antique spoon handle, pictured at top.
