Milomade breathes new life into forgotten things, weaving together histories and materials to transform the everyday into something extraordinary and unique.
Evie Milo is a jeweller/designer/maker working with rare and recycled materials. Her motto is 'Too good to waste' and when you buy from Milomade you acquire something not just unique and beautiful but something that leaves neither damage nor waste in its wake.
Affectionately known as the 'spoon lady', Evie chooses to work with recycled silver instead of depleting the world of its natural resources. Salvaged antique sterling silver teaspoons are re-imagined and transformed into items with a new beauty and charm.
This raw material is taken on three entirely different journeys to create three distinct collections: beautiful heirlooms from one generation are cleverly reinvented for the next and each piece is meticulously handcrafted with individuality and uniqueness in mind.
Antique Silverware Collection:
Made from the stems of sterling silver teaspoons, this striking collection of antique silverware rings focuses on historical details and designs that are brought into the present and given new meaning and lease of life. These spoon rings come in a wide range of designs and are either unique or come in small limited edition sets of up to 10 rings - this rarity gives the rings a unique selling point and exclusivity. The original hallmarks are retained and the provenance of each teaspoon is carefully researched and documented. This information outlines the silversmith as well as the city and year in which each individual teaspoon was assayed (usually Sheffield, Birmingham or London) and accompanies each ring at the point of sale.
Enduring Love Collection:
My Enduring Love collection has a heart at its centre and focuses on love, relationships, memories and connections. All items in the collection are handcrafted, beautifully simple and elegant, retaining the natural curve and shape of the original teaspoon bowls. The silver is recycled, restored and then lovingly transformed into precious keepsakes that can be gifted to loved ones in the knowledge that each piece is as unique as they are.
Connecting past to the present, my Echoes Collection is inspired by the coastal landscape that surrounds us. The textures in rock, the patterns in sand, the ripples in water, directly inform the process and design of each piece in the collection. Every item is meticulously handcrafted from the bowls of antique sterling silver teaspoons and 100% recycled EcoSilver. Just like a pebble found on a beach, the individual pieces are all unique with their own personal qualities, textures and details.
