"One More Spoon" Heart

"One More Spoon" Heart


First described in a 2003 essay by Christine Miserandino, spoon theory has been adopted by the community of people living with a broad range of physical and emotional health issues, and its concept of using spoons as a metaphor for physical or emotional energy to explain the limitations, need for rationing resources & future planning when living with a disability has entered our American vernacular.  In short, each of us has a limited number of spoons to get us through a day. Some days we have more, some days we have fewer. When we are out of spoons it is more difficult, or impossible to accomplish even simple tasks.


As a survivor of domestic abuse and two chronic invisible illnesses, Vittoria knows this metaphor is far from perfect but she also knows that anyone can find themselves short on spoons and that we must give ourselves grace and support each other.  In this era of social media, remote everything, and pandemic lockdowns, she found herself watching her friends struggle and wishing that she could share some of her spoons with those that have fewer. 


This desire inspired the creation of the "One More Spoon" series.  Affectionately referred to as the 'spoonful of love' this dainty spoon pendant is crafted to feature a heart shape cut out of the bowl of the spoon. Please remember that this token is a physical reminder that you are loved, that you are valid, and yes, you can.


Because these spoons have such a special place in Vittoria's heart, Arte*Vitta will donate $15 for each pendant to the Women's Center of Southeast Michigan.
