Show and Tell Friday

Here is my first contribution to Kelli's Show and Tell:

This ring was given to me by my grandma when she was visiting the States this Fall. I'm not a huge jewelry person. I have a few necklaces that I received last Christmas, some bracelets, and rings, but I don't typically wear jewelry every day.

When Grandma asked if I wanted a ring I

  • saw that it was silver

  • realized how unique it was

  • and determined it fit my right ring finger

I put it on and have only taken it off to clean it, and to knead dough. It is hard to show in pictures all the intricate detail in the silver. Some of it has also worn down from wear. Note: I am modeling it on my left hand, as I cannot take pictures of my right hand while using the camera with my right hand.

To me it looks just like the end of a silver spoon. As though someone cut it down and fashioned it into a ring. There is some sort of labeling on the inside, but I can't quite make it out. I love how it is both beautiful and basic (even with the intricacies). Each time I look at it I think of Grandma and anticipate our next visit.

What a beautiful ring! And you're right it is what they call a spoon ring, because it is made from a spoon--or possibly a fork. I love spoon jewelry and I'm glad you found a finger for it to fit.
