Frénay Feuille - Sterling Silver Spoon
The ultimate absinthe spoon: a new sterling silver replica of the legendary Frénay Feuille spoon from Kirk Burkett.
The extraordinary leaf-design Feuille spoon made by the Parisian silversmiths Armand Frénay was recognized almost from the outset as the most beautiful of all absinthe spoons. Today, surviving originals are not just rare, but essentially unobtainable - less than a handful survive, and only one has come on the market in the last decade. A few replicas have been made in recent years, but without exception they are merely rough approximations of the originals, crudely copied from catalogue illustrations.
We've been working over the last year with Kirk to create something at an altogether higher level: a PERFECT replica, faithful to every detail and nuance of the original, crafted in solid silver. It's based on a die cast from the original in the Virtual Museum, and then painstakingly individually finished by hand, a process that takes more than three hours for each spoon. After much trial and error, we found that regular sterling silver didn't allow us to create the precise surface texture we wanted on the handle, so we used a rarer and more expensive sterling silver alloy containing a minute quantity of germanium, which not only allowed us to create the handle precisely as desired, but also provides unusual resistance to tarnishing.
Great care has been taken with the weighting and balance of this spoon. It sits beautifully on the glass, and will fit any standard Pontarlier, Cordon or reservoir model. Our aim was to make the perfect absinthe spoon both functionally and aesthetically, and I think we've succeeded.
This spoon is a work of craftmanship on the highest level. Each spoon is individually signed by Kirk Burkett, and only 300 will be made,
after which the die will be destroyed. The price includes worldwide shipping by insured air parcel. Limited edition of 300 pieces, each marked by the artist.

Here's what I did: I had about 1/2 lb. of the black cod after I removed the skin, and I cut it into about 1/2-inch cnukhs. Put it in a glass container with some minced garlic, a pinch of sea salt and covered it with lime juice (about 3 limes worth maybe a cup?). Then I let it sit, covered, in the fridge for half an hour. I pulled it out, added some very thinly sliced onion, tossed it all together and put it back in the fridge for another 15 minutes or so.For the tomato salad, I halved a bunch of little cherry and pear tomatoes, thinly sliced a fresh chile pepper, sliced up more onion into paper-thin slices, and tossed it with a dressing made up of a couple of tablespoons of (secret ingredient!) fish sauce, some fresh lime juice and zest, and canola oil (you can sub any other neutral-flavored oil, of course). I tossed it all and let it sit and marinate while the ceviche finished, then added some cubed cucumber and lots of fresh cilantro right at the end (I wanted the cukes to stay crisp and firm, rather than soften in the dressing). And that was it! http://zazjub.com [url=http://zyemtqa.com]zyemtqa[/url] [link=http://pzbqmrb.com]pzbqmrb[/link]

Thank you for giving us a real-world _a href="http://qvxylx.com"_exlapme_/a_ on which to base our SMART goals, Christina. I've heard of goals needing to be measurable and so on but, in honesty, haven't had the knowledge of how to go about setting such goals and have been a little shy to ask for the fact that people might call me stupid. Now I can see clearly, in 5, plain steps, just how I need to structure my goals in order to give myself the best chance of achieveing them!

The ingrained nonoits and ratioadnaladizaadtions with which you batadtle are so neuadrotic and self-â€‹â€‹deprecating that the conadcluadsion is inescapable: my friend, you are an artist!But I disadagree with one of your realadizaadtions: I believe artists ARE more likely to drink heavadily and doa0drugs.

First â€” love your phoadtoadgraph; so glad I stumadbled upon youra0site.Second â€” I find it very interadestading that youâ€™re ponadderading the â€śam I an artistâ€ť quesadtion at the same time many peoadple who are part of a mixed media interadnet group I beolng to are wonadderading just the same thing. Am I an artist? When have I â€śmade itâ€ť as an artist? Perhaps you only conadtemadplate that quesadtion only when you creadate and then care if your voice is heard and/â€‹or appreadciadated. And I agree that being an artist extends beyond just drawading. So yes, your phoadtogadraadphy defadiadnitely counts and you are an artist.

I am conadvinced that â€śwritaders blockâ€ť in art (artistâ€™s blank?) is much more comadpliadcated than in writading. Maybe thatâ€™s because I have never ever thhogut of myself as a writer. I have even sat amazed that peoadple would write just for fun! But I can get lost in drawading. When I come to, I either hate it and want no one to see it ( but canâ€™t get rid of it, as if it was to be eviaddence of how much Iâ€™d improved laterâ€¦or some kind of self flaadgeladlaadtion, or I canâ€™t imagadine that I actuadally drew that. Unfortunately, as I look at my work by dayadlight, it too often must be hid away. I guess that the reward comes in the actual creadation. That part of me that goes silent and focuses on makading your hand do what you want it to do, and the pleaadsure when your hand suradprises you. Itâ€™s rivadetading, exhaustading, invigadoadratading, releasading, mesadmeradizading, and I just like doing it! So what the heck, being able to sell someadthing once in a great while is just a bonus!Until that â€śblankâ€ť comes: that feelading that I am wastading my time and it will only embaradrass me later if anyadone finds out who did that junk, and I should really get all my â€śought toâ€śs done before I play. But I am usuadally seduced back into imbibading, but maybe less likely to show it to anyadone. That is the â€śartist blankâ€ť. http://fgjcqhani.com [url=http://qzojjsdii.com]qzojjsdii[/url] [link=http://klnhceq.com]klnhceq[/link]

that the most songs in this production have new sound and new music _a href="http://ilaqsqm.com"_veisron_/a_ but as I listened some of those songs took from Hang Meas.Ex sne chob srob pel srolanh by Chhorn Sovannreach in HM-_ neak na kor deung tha yoeung chea sangsa neung knea by Ly Ivathina, vithey kmean chet by Aok Sokun Kanha -_ thngai mun chea oun thngai nis kor chea oun by Meas Sok Sophea .etc. Maybe those music are new in Town but in Hang Meas are old. 1

When I first got the ring I thought it would be! It _a href="http://jdaxyntjhs.com"_loeokd_/a_ a bit bigger in the picture. I but the ring itself was amazing. She liked it and very happy to receive it.

This ring is gorgeous, my grrfliiend loves it, but upon closer inspection we noticed that on of the black diamonds is missing, she loves this ring, but if it would have been complete, without flaws, it would have been perfect.
By Frehiwot the 18/10/2015
so big on me that I just can't chance weianrg them, I however feel naked without something on my left ring finger showing that I am indeed taken. I searched hi and low for something to wear until all of the medical issues are taken care of, the prices were so much at all the jewelry stores I looked at and almost gave up until I found this ring on Amazon, it's sterling sliver with gold plate and it works perfect, I have me circle of unending love on my finger and I didn't have to break the bank. I am planing on using it until my weight is stable then get my official rings sized. This ring is so shiney and well made I may want to keep weianrg it too. I got the ring so fast they did an awesome job of getting my naked finger covered back up. I plan yo shop this jewelry store for other things I give nieces jewelry as gifts and with these reasonable prices, it will make spoiling my girls easier. I highly recommend this ring to someone who is like I am and needs to have her security ring on all the time.

I had the pleasure of buying one of these functional pieces of art a few years ago..... As an occasional drinking of absinthe this spoon is perfection.
As a sculptor I can appreciate the work involved in making this look totally organic..I spoke to Kirk after I received mine to congratulate him on a true work of art!!
Buy one to use or even just to look at and feel.
