I only feel angry when I see waste. When I see people throwing away things we could use. — Mother Teresa
Do you recognize your Mom’s silver fork? Or your Grandma’s silverware spoon?
Joanne and Brad of Jurassic Gems take vintage 100-year-old forks and spoons such as those originally made by Rogers Bros. or Birks and fashion one-of-a-kind bracelets and rings from them.
They also design earrings with pewter details and silver french hooks.
I was dashing through the Victoria Market on downtown Douglas Street to pick up an item from Olive the Senses and was lured to the Jurassic Gems kiosk…….yes, like a crow to a shiny object!
It’s so similar to my own set of Rogers Bros. “Reflections” gold cutlery — I could NOT resist!
Find your own specific treasure — or take your handed-down silverware to Joanne and Brad.
