During the time I first found this pattern I was working at a summer camp with a good friend. Her mother was battling a very viscous fight with cancer. A few months before that my beautiful cousin lost her fight to cancer. This ring reminds me of the time I went to collect wild flowers to give to my friend during her tough days at camp. The wild flowers mean so much more than simple flowers. They represent something so pure and true that no one can take away. They represent new life. Even in the darkest times there will always be new life. I know both my cousin and friend's mother are now in a peaceful place of new life. My hope for this ring is to remind us there is always hope. Each morning we wake up is a blessing. Each step we take is a blessing. Life is a blessing and the people around us are and will always be beautiful.
The spoon used to make this ring is from 1932 by Alvin called "Bridal Boutique". A beautiful arrangement of wild flowers go all the way around the spoon.

Aaron Paul can re-size any spoon ring to fit your finger free of charge. He takes great care in carefully cleaning each spoon and uniquely turning it into a piece of history you can wear. Each piece of silverware Aaron Paul uses dates back between the early 1800’s to mid 1900’s with a majority of the patterns between 1880’s to 1930’s.
My goal as an artist is to not only show the beauty and history of each piece of art but also the beauty of the person that wears this ring. I believe every person has a unique identity. With this identity and skills learned throughout life they can go into the world and shed light into dark places. My hope is that my art will help remind each person how unique they are and how they are one of a kind.
