About Us

DB Craft Creations were very pleased to receive a certificate for the best trade stand at the Sandringham Motor Home & Caravan Club's 90th Anniversary 2017

Thank you for visiting my website. My name is David Bodsworth; I retired in 2012 from being a production supervisor but prior to that a tool setter and saw doctor so I have always enjoyed working with my hands doing skilful work. My love of working with silver came about from having a selection of solid silver teaspoons that unexpectantly came with an auction purchase for a vintage radio I placed a bid on and won, I had previously been reading about the history of the spoon ring which I found very interesting so after finding the spoons this gave me the idea to have a go and make a spoon ring which I enjoyed making immensely so this then gave me the inspiration to start creating some beautiful jewellery in my workshop from the silver cutlery and have continued to transform tired and very old pieces of cutlery into Rings, Bangles and Pendants. I am self-taught and have made all my own tooling.

Having always had a very creative mind I not only make the traditional pieces of jewellery but I like to design the quirky (statement) pieces as well. I pride myself on the finish and the look on all of my work knowing the person that comes along and purchases a unique and beautiful piece of history gives me great satisfaction. Having worked a lot of craft fairs with my wife over the last few years we have been asked many times if we have a website.

So this has inspired us to have a website and we hope you will take a look at what we have to offer and make us one of your favourites.

History: Spoon Ring origin.

Spoon rings date back as far as the 1600’s in England and were  originally worn as a wedding ring on the thumb.  As the story goes, servants who had fallen in love and wanted to marry would steal silver spoons from their master’s homes and have  them crafted into rings by the local blacksmith. They were too poor to be able to buy a ring, so this was their best alternative to offering a  valuable ring to the woman they loved and to whom they wanted to make their wife.  

During the 1960’s the spoon ring became very fashionable again with the hippy culture.
