This simple Indian spoon ring pays respect to the Sauk Indian leader Black Hawk. At an early age Black Hawk got a reputation for leading violent attacks along side British soldiers. Later in life he realized the effects of his violent behavior and decided to step up against violence instead of creating it. In one of his speeches later on in life he says, "I thank the Great Spirit that I am now friendly with my white brethren. We are here together, we have eaten together; we are friends; it is his wish and mine. I thank you for your friendship."
This ring has Black Hawks portrait followed by two ears of corn and a bow & arrow. The inside of the ring shows a teepee, a canoe, and tools that would have been used by Blackhawk.

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.
