Kim Maurer is a Bohemian Artisan who hand crafts jewellery from upcycled Antique, vintage and unusual solid silver cutlery. Kim loves to travel and collects spoons from all over the world and then sells the finished hand crafted rings on line and in the MostlyManx shop.
Spoon rings were first made in 17th century England as wedding gifts by servants who could not afford expensive precious metals. Servants would steal a silver spoon from their master and have it turned into a wedding ring to be worn on the thumb of their true love. Servants who were caught were sentenced for “stealing a silver spoon” and this expression of love would be punished with a sentence of 7 years imprisonment overseas.
Ever since these times, spoon rings have been a timeless and unique gift of love, a wonderful piece of heritage not forgotten.
“You weren’t born with a silver spoon in your mouth, but can live life with one on your hand”.
