Sonya of Rocpoet is a dear friend of mine.  We bonded when we met at a local Cambridge, Ontario bead store gathering.  Like me,  she got her start in jewelry making with beadwork many years ago. But she has found her niche in metalsmithing with metal stamping as her specialty.

What she loves to do is upcycle silver plated flatware into unique jewelry designs. She collects a lot of wonderful patterns, some of which are vintage.

Sonya uses up as much of the flatware as she can.  She saws shapes, does cut outs and solders stamped pieces as you can see from the spoon bowl pendant below. 

She not only enjoys the sawing technique, her creative mind comes up with adorable designs such as the dog charm below.  I also love her cat, mermaid tail pendants and "ele-fork" designs!

Sonya gave me one of her spoon rings shown above - a beautifully upcycled and very comfortable ring indeed.  

Another talent of Sonya's is her clever way with puns - some examples are shown with her custom stamped pie/cake slice, forks and stir spoons.

Sonya sells her designs through her Instagram  and Facebook as well as at a local shop called The Juniper Artisan Collective
