Saving History One Piece At A Time

Did you realize newly engaged couples don’t “register” for silver patterns any more? Did you know that silver plate flatware has  not  been manufactured in the USA  since 1992?  My name is  Elsa and at Tempest in a Teapot and Silver Flat Wear  we provide a solution for what to do with your family heirlooms by preserving a  piece of American history.

Most people don’t know what to do with the silver pieces that have been handed down through their families.  The younger generations don’t want to be bothered polishing place settings for 8 - 12. Enter Tempest in a Teapot. We take  vintage silverware and re-purpose it into wearable art and wind chimes.

Wearable art?  Yes. Vintage flatware was designed by talented  craftspeople  and  are actually small works  of art.    A lot  of sterling silver patterns  have  been  sold  by families and  melted down for scrap.    How sad to lose all that craftsmanship. We take that craft and preserve it for current and future family members to enjoy without 

all the upkeep.

When you wear our jewelry, people will be amazed that it used to be “flat”ware.  It goes well with any style of clothing from jeans to wedding gowns.  Our Angel Bells have been our most popular piece ever.  With the help of our wholesale partners, the Angel Bells are owned by tens of thousands  of people and we have shipped our products to 4 of 7 continents.

Contact  us.  A bracelet, a ring, a pair of earrings.  What better way to celebrate your family’s history?  If you no long have your family’s silver, no worries.  We may have your pattern or you can choose one of ours.  Either way, you will be saving a piece of history.




I am proud of the work I do.  So, everything is guaranteed. Period.  Not happy with your purchase?  I’ll refund or replace, your choice.  It broke?  I’ll fix it FREE (you pay shipping one way). I will do whatever needs to be done to make you a happy, and hopefully repeat, client.
