MAKING SPOON RINGS

THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO MAKING HEIRLOOM TREASURES

Over the years I've had the opportunity to handcraft thousands of spoon rings. And for a long time, I've wanted to share my process to anyone curious about how they are made or who'd like to learn how to create their very own. In my book I am presenting all of the steps I've learned along the way, from start to finish!

How come you're giving it away for FREE?

Originally, I developed series of videos explaining and demonstrating much of what I want to cover in the book. Over time, my technique for creating the perfect spoon ring has developed beyond what I was able to share when I filmed those videos. I'm eager to take the proper time to photograph and document each step of that process in the form of a book to share for free with anyone who wants to learn!
