Enjoying life, off the hamster wheel
I’m making jewellery out of silverware these days, and I’ve been doing a little bit of research about silverware patters to I’ll include with the finished pieces.
I was given a partial set of silverware of my Dad’s after he passed away, and I fell in love with it and in my search for cutlery for jewellery, I learned that it’s called “Lady Hamilton” and was manufactured by Community in Oneida, New York from 1932 to 1956. Community changed its name to Oneida, which is a popular and recognizable brand today. In my search, I was able to build a full set of this cutlery of this beautiful pattern.
I was given some spoons to make jewellery out of, which prompted this post.
It’s great to hear how others love this set too. It’s simple and elegant. I came across the following excellent online article about Lady Hamilton’s perfect fork. It’s true! It is a perfect fork, and the knife feels really good in the hand too. A really balanced weight, comfortable and effortless. This history of the style is indicative of a transitional period in history.
I invite you to read the article and enjoy the world of cutlery design.
