Welcome to my blog. I have spent the last couple of years writing a PHD and making video art about place. When I discovered souvenir spoons, they seemed the perfect nostalgic object - a marker of place attachment and belonging. Making jewelry out of them seemed a natural development for me -as in this form they become both talismans of place and reminders of special locations. I love the vintage ones in particular, as they suggest a world that no longer exists. I am not one for nostalgia, so, I hope to develop my craft and create more elaborate pieces from vintage finds. As I sell each piece, from my site at www.etsy.com/shop/evaelena
I hope to post pictures my customers and their story.
