“South Seas” 1955 Vintage Earrings | Vintage Silverware | Oneida | Up-Cycled | Antique
This listing is for one pair of earrings, created by hand from vintage silver plated spoon handles known as “South Seas”. It happens to be my mother’s pattern and this is her actual silverware I’m working with.
It pairs nicely with the spoon ring made from the same pattern. See my separate listing.
The South Seas silver plate pattern by Community Oneida is a classic in the grouping of mid-century modern. The fresh geometric design at the base of the flatware handle is surrounded by the very contemporary mirrored finish. This pattern was introduced in 1955 and discontinued in 1965.
Clean, polish, cut, smooth, bend, bend, cuss, bend, sweat, bend, hammer, tumble, patina, buff. Sound easy? It’s painstakingly difficult but the end result … beautiful and unique! You can expect to see signs of its age and prior use but that just adds to it's uniqueness!
If you have your eye on this or any other piece, snatch 'em up. In some instances I have a few of the same pattern. In other cases, they are a one of a kind! Once they’re gone, they’re gone for good!
I hope you can appreciate the unique beauty and hard work that goes into these.
