"It's been said that some of the greatest creative minds in the world have suffered some kind of tragedy to make them pursue their artistic endeavor to the ends of the earth. It's possible the same could be said about jewelry designer Karin Collins, founder of SpoonFed Art. Collins uses a unique technique to create her stunning pendants... staggeringly beautiful pendants with a soul."
"Collins launched her company, SpoonFed Art, and found herself increasingly busy, especially after a write-up in hipster bible Nylon. She started selling her pieces in Silver Lake... and in the Los Angeles Craft and Folk Art Museum shop. But more than being part of any trend, what really excites Collins is the notion that her story is somehow inspirational."
"At first glance, the pendants Karin Collins makes are simply gorgeous. Rich, liquid colors combine with intricate details to form memorable accessories. Then, if you look a bit closer, you might notice that the pendants are made from spoons. Clever, no? And if you're lucky enough to get to talk with Collins for a moment, you might learn about her story; her triumph over an eating disorder, and all the history that makes her jewelry even more beautiful..."
"Most people only think about spoons when they're about to, say, scarf down a bowl of Lucky Charms; Karin Collins sees them as bite-sized canvases for art. The L.A.-based designer hacks the handles off ordinary utensils and fills them with all things sticky, shiny, and bright to form kitschy, unexpectedly punky pendants... Wear one, and you're guaranteed to cause a few mouths to open."
