Say In Silver

Specialising in hand stamping personalised messages onto vintage silver plated spoons, other cutlery

I'm Rachel and I live in North Shropshire with my husband, two little people and one big dog. I specialise in hand stamping personalised messages onto vintage silver plated cutlery. I also use sheet metal to produce key rings, bookmarks, plant and kilner labels and small pictures with inspirational quotes. At the moment I'm working from a corner of the playroom during school hours and evening


Reminder. It's never too late.

I've had a rummage about and found some spoons that are ready to go.
There's absolutely nothing wrong with them! Sometimes I realise I've spelt a name wrong, or got the text slightly different to how it was wanted, so I have to re-do and I put these to one side. These are what are left and they've had a polish.

So (if you know someone with the right name!) this is your chance to grab a bargain Christmas present for someone. Β£9.50 which includes UK p&p. I can post to you to gift, or straight to the recipient with a gift note form you.

Bubbly spoons for a mum, Mandy, Sophie, Claire and Becky. And a dessert spoon for a Vicki.

DM me to buy. Or if you have one if these names tag whoever you want to get it for you πŸ˜†

.. I may have more depending how much rummaging I have time for!


Bubbly spoons! 🍾πŸ₯‚πŸ₯„
Always super popular gifts.
Do you pop a spoon in your bottle to keep it fizzy?

A few of today's spoons πŸ’ž


This is me sorted for the evening! πŸ˜†
Please order early from small businesses, it really makes the world of difference. Any likes and shares are appreciated too 😊

I haven't decided on my UK cut off date yet. Royal Mail seem to be holding up well so far 🀞🏻 and I'm keeping on top of orders, so we'll just see how it goes for now.

Thank you to everyone that has been keeping me busy. X


Good to know πŸ‘πŸ» on all etsy orders- only until midnight.

Some beauties left today.
I am absolutely loving the large dessert serving spoons at the moment (last two shots)



Lots of sparkly personalised gifts ready to post πŸ’Œ


Little decorations available as a set of four or individually. Perfect to pop over the neck of a bottle of gin to gift.


Christmas films incoming!
This is a popular teaspoon duo, and this matching pair went out today.

I love Mary Poppins, as do my kids from a very young age. I love the second film too, but they not so much. I think I'm going to have to introduce them to the sound of music this year, see what they make of that.

Thank you for these brilliant air pocket envelopes πŸ™. The cornstarch means these should also be reusable if you open carefully. Something I can never manage with the paper filled alternative.
I only tend to use these for international post, it's a card box for the UK πŸ‘πŸ»

You will still find me sending plastic Jiffy bags/bubble wrap, but it won't be anything I've bought. I will always reuse anything I can that is sent to me.

And thank you always, for the magnificent tea. Organic, with a plant based biodegradable bag. And it's a damn good brew to boot πŸ‘Œ

I have still have small room for improvement. But very happy to be on the right track.


πŸ“’ attention international friends.

Cannot believe I'm thinking about this now! It's so mild here in blighty that it just doesn't feel possible that we need to consider Christmas post ... But we do.

So thankful we are not having to work around Royal Mail strikes, cyber attacks or any covid restrictions in the delivery work place this year.
In fact, this might be the first 'normal' Christmas delivery season since 2019!!!! What luxury! πŸ˜† (Although I suppose I shouldn't speak too soon 😬)

Nevertheless, we do still have to work to a timetable! πŸŽ„πŸŽ

Australia πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί and New Zealand πŸ‡³πŸ‡Ώ you're up first! Last order by 30th November please.

Everywhere else 🌍 last orders by 7th December.

UK πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ we will keep going a while after that, we'll see nearer the time.

Of course you can order after these dates, but it may not reach you in time for gifting at Christmas.

So, in a (Christmas) nutshell... Get yourself sorted as early as possible and then sit back with a mulled wine and a mince pie and bask in the glory of being organised and gifting all in hand.

I was waiting before I posted this photo until the date had passed and it had been gifted... And then totally forgot l it. That's summer holidays for you.
My first spoon. Great idea.

They are back!
In very limited numbers and colours. Please message for requests.
Vintage silver plate as always and beautiful bakelite handles.


πŸ“’Pllease get any orders in asap.

πŸ“’ Notice that I am taking a tea break from Friday 11th until Sunday 20th August.

πŸ“’ My Etsy shop will be open as normal and I will be able to answer messages while sipping my tea, but I will unfortunately not be able to complete any work at all until my break finishes.

πŸ“’ Until Thursday evening service remains as normal and I will endeavour to be up to date at that point.

πŸ“’ That is all


Earlier I was rummaging around looking for a s**t stirrer (πŸ˜† no really, someone had ordered one and I was seeing if I had one already made) and I came across this classic.
And, well it's a little late on the Barbie front but I'm putting it here anyway, it was one in the collection of classic strong women teaspoons.


Here's me having a quiet cup of tea and thinking with my thinking cup (a beautiful bone china cup from Death By Tea who I don't think are on insta but definitely FB so go look them up).

Today I've had conversations with lovely humans from Cumbria and Oadby England, Dublin Ireland, California (Hollywood!) USA, Athens Greece, and Penley Wales (ok it's only 2 miles down the road but it still crosses over the border!) And a failed attempt to re-communicate to Maine USA- please check your mail Lynn!

Isn't. It. Wonderful.

Cheers to all you lovely people making connections with other real people and choosing to buy from small businesses near and far. It's just amazing.

Feeling a bit squishy but mainly thankful.


I'm having a super grumpy evening for no apparent reason (other than hormones).
So throw back to this photo because absolutely no question about it.
But tonight a glass of wine, a blanket, crochet and rubbish TV helps too.


Always happy to discuss metal work that isn't listed on my Etsy shop. Just send a message outlining your need and will see what can be done.

I do like the packaging process. Colourful gift wrap, care label, a little note card, info sheet, a tea bag. And a big thank you. From me to you.


Surround yourself with tea riffic people


Make sure you get a decent sized pud with one of these *huge* dessert serving spoons!

Your own text hand can be stamped onto vintage silver plated flatware to suit any occasion.


If you know me you know I love tall skinny woofers πŸΎπŸ’•

Have a browse and maybe a bid.
I'm lot 7, but there's so much on offer!

Where's your special place?


Occasionally I have my hands in shot to give a sense of scale. I always have makers/gardener's hands though! πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
Anyway, these bottle tags are lovely to personalise if you're gifting a bottle for a special occasion.

I moved to North Wales when I was 18 and lived there until I was 34 (ish πŸ€”). We moved back just over the border 9/10 years ago. But literally just a couple of miles outside! So hello Welsh friends πŸ‘‹
(This spoon didn't actually go to Wales, it went to Maidenhead πŸ˜†)
