Hand metal stamping is an arduous process, and we admire anyone who has the patience to do it, let alone with such winsome flair as Jessica Numbers. Numbers sources vintage silver flatware, and hand stamps them with her own designs. We were taken with these particular spoons today—the etching-like permanence of these expressions seems particularly resonant—but deep sentiment is not the only thing on display in her collection. Clever humor and inspired prettiness abounds, too—I mean, is it even possible to resist a spoon full of falling stars?
