Anne Arkle

Born and raised on Anglesey, I began making silver spoon rings as a hobby in 2010 after being inspired by the history of the silver spoon ring which dates back to 17th Century Britain.

In August 2011 we launched our company Jaspersparkle at the Anglesey Show.  The name of our company is a combination of our cat’s name Jasper who sadly isn’t with us any more, and Sparkle which was my childhood nickname! Jasper lives on in our new company logo.

I am self taught, and class myself as a Spoonsmith!, my tools are very basic and probably similar to the tools used back in the 17th century. Each ring is hand crafted using nylon and rawhide hammers, steel mandrels and tree trunk base wood to work on which is kinder to the silver.

The rings are shaped from “cold” ie. I don’t use any form of heat or flame to create each piece.

Jaspersparkle silver spoon rings each have their original historic hallmark visible, I am also very  proud to be able to give the spoons a new lease of life, honouring  tradition and giving the customer  a unique handmade piece.
