The Loving Spoon

Maya from The Loving Spoon is always on the lookout for antique silverware. On her forays through antique shops and flea markets, she sometimes comes across beautiful old spoons that aren’t quite up to the task of spooning soup, but still much too special to be consigned to a retirement on a landfill. So Maya gives them a second shot at life as a very special keychain. 

For us, she has created a series of two different keychains, using both the handles and the spoony part. You have the choice between “Mahlzeit”, a very nobelhart word or “Doch”, a very German word which doesn’t even translate into any other language. Each pendant is unique and varies in size, shape and patina. We’re making your life a little easier by choosing it for you – you’ll just have to let us know whether you prefer the spoon shell or the handle.

The Loving Spoon
Maya Chelmis is all about creating sustainable, beautiful objects for everyday use. In this, she fuses ample creativity with her passion for all things vintage and antique – and that’s exactly how The Loving Spoon was born. Maya goes trawling the fleamarkets, auction houses and yard sales of Berlin and Zurich for pieces of antique silverware. These are then lovingly cleaned and restored by hand before Maya adds her very own special finish by engraving them with heartfelt messages.  Maya firmly believes that a gift or personal keepsake doesn’t have to be something new or something that creates more waste in the world. By relying entirely on antique silverware, she creates a wonderful cycle in which she breathes new life into pre-loved objects.
