Dianne Pecor has worked with silverware since the early 70’s, when “spoon rings” came into fashion. Dianne attended silversmithing and lapidary classes through the City of Phoenix. Over the past three decades, Dianne’s inventory of unusual items has increased. She never gives up! Everything is made from antique forks, spoons, knives and serving pieces. Dianne begins with a piece of silverware and uses her imagination to make each piece a unique form of art; first it’s cut, then the rough edges are smoothed out, and finally it is bent into shape. Some of the items are silver soldered together to form a certain shape. If Dianne decides to add semi-precious stones, she silver solders the bezels on. Dianne not only makes all forms of jewelry, but also chimes, angels, bud vases, and animals. Customers bring Dianne their old silverware to make items for them to pass on to their families as gifts. This is a great remembrance and the ultimate in recycling. Dianne Pecor winters in Maricopa, and is at 520-424-9004.
