1  Silver spoon and copper macrame cattail necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by functionalflea on: May 13, 2013 04:16:54 PM
The cabochon for this necklace was made using a piece of flattened copper pipe, found on the road and an old silver spoon.  The patterns on both layers were cut using a jewelers saw.  The button was made from a piece of spoon handle.  The necklace is knotted using c-lon cord.

2  Poodle Skirt Applique in Needlework: Completed Projects by functionalflea on: July 20, 2011 05:04:31 AM
I was asked to make a poodle applique for a 1950's costume.  I used a felt base and vintage pink embroidery floss.  I used a bullion stitch to make the curls.

3  Metal spreader mermaid pearl necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by functionalflea on: April 21, 2011 01:29:49 PM
I used an old metal spreader and cut it to look like a mermaid.  I cut the sand dollars and starfish from scraps left from cutting metal spoons.  The macrame work is done with linen on the outside, but the holding cords are nylon so that the fresh water pearls will not brake the cord as easily.

4  Macrame owl necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by functionalflea on: April 15, 2011 05:45:46 PM
I was playing around with different ideas for my etsy store, so I decided to revisit macrame.  I hadn't done any for years.  I made a cottolin owl pendant.  The perch and button closure are cut from the handle of a silver spoon.[img][/img]

5  Matchbook covered jewelry box in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by functionalflea on: April 10, 2011 03:35:31 PM
I got this jewelry box at the thriftstore.  It had a paper-like covering that was in bad shape.  When I pulled it off I found out that while the box was wood, the top and the bottom were heavy cardboard and the drawer fronts were metal.  I covered the box with old matchbook covers then coated it with high gloss varnish.  I painted the hardware black.

My aunt asked me to make her a humming bird necklace.  I used an old silver spoon and cut the pattern in using a jeweler's saw.  The clasp is made with the spoon handle.

I made this necklace using 5 silverplated ice tea spoons.  It is strung with African turquoise (aka jasper) and black glass beads.  I made the clasp from one of the spoon handles.
