Vintage Silverware Jewelry

I’ve spent a few hours this morning trying to write a new Etsy ad. It’s difficult enough on an iPad but add on the Etsy long tail keyword challenge and the going is tougher than ever. I’ve pared my regular Etsy ad style description down to almost nothing with bullets and a few sentences. Here’s the copied segment:

Fork Ring

– Made from a vintage silverplate dinner fork

– Three tines tall (about 3/4”)

– Polished finish

A fun and bold statement ring

Heavy silver-plated pieces will last another lifetime

Vintage cutlery has shape and size variations along with age induced patina, it all adds to the uniqueness of these pieces. Large size rings will have a wider solid edge than small sizes.

The verdict is out on how well I get this one located in Etsy search! Here goes and here’s a view of my Three Tine Fork Ring

Tiny Triangle Lapis Lazuli Stacking Ring

Lapis Tiny Stacking RingGold speckled Lapis Stone set in a custom made silver bezel for this tiny stacking ring.  I ground this triangle shape cabochon from a random piece of Lapis chip bead.  The best thing about this operation was how easy the grinding was accomplished.  I should add how very much I’ve enjoyed stacking it with my Opal rounds.

Grabbing the Brass Ring

14 gauge gold brass wire ring.

I found inspiration in a vintage 60’s Taxco Mexico silver ring.

It started as a large closed loop; was bent and hammered and then sized on a mandrel.  Maybe not exactly in that order.   To be fair, I needed a rolling mill to take the wire down thinner and wider.  Brass is surprising fluid and very much “alike” to gold.  It will acquire a patina and needs a lemon juice rinse or a tarnish cloth treatment once in a while.
