Who we are
My name is Frankie, I am 22 years of age – I started Stirring Silver at the age of 14, I initially sold to family and friends and also attended the occasional craft fayre in and around the South Yorkshire Area.
I have recently been crowned Young Trader of the Year 2019 and appeared on the BBC’s One Show where the winner was announced.
As lots of silverware is being melted down for scrap, I wanted to find a way to preserve some history in a way that is suited to anyone, and I found jewellery the best option for this.
Each antique piece is especially chosen by myself and my aim is to preserve it for years to come
In the past I have had requests to work on the customers own spoons that were once a family members – this is a lovely way to remember a loved one with something you can wear everyday. The dates found on the hallmark of the piece can also be a memorable date, such as a birth year or year of marriage for the customer.
Each piece in my collection is handcrafted and hand-polished by myself in my Sheffield workshop.
