Grandma is gone and you've just inherited her antique spoon collection. Instead of spending the rest of your natural life polishing knives and forks, you pack them up and sell them off to the highest bidder.

"People don't like to polish silverware anymore. They put them in their drawers and they turn black," says Wendy Worobets of The Family Jewels in Sherwood Park. Along with her husband, Colin Naylor, who lends his knowledge as a machinist, Worobets is reviving the lost art of pressing antique spoons into rings. The artistry traces back more than a hundred years ago. Sailors in the navy would sneak away pieces of silverware from the ship galley and roll them into engagement rings for their girlfriends, she says.
