1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Spider Spoon Pendant on: September 25, 2014 07:26:40 AM
I made this pendant for a gift for one of my mom's friends for Halloween.  I used a old silver plated soup spoon.  It is hand cut using a jewelers saw.  The spider is made from scraps of copper pipe.  It is hand riveted on using copper.  The cord is made using c lon cord that I wove.  The button for the closure is made from a spoon handle.

Thanks golden8harvest.  It did not take long once it was cut out.  It took about an hour to make the pattern.  I have added pictures of my pattern pieces.  It is very simple.  I did not make a pattern for the strap.

Thanks.  I did not use a specific pattern.  I drew this up myself.  I went with fairly simple pieces so I could try to match the plaid.

I found this heavy vintage car upholstery fabric at the local fabric outlet.  I probably should have made the purse a bit larger, but I have more fabric--so I will probably make a tote next.

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.


7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Poodle Skirt Applique 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.

So I seen this and was like  Shocked PRETTY!

I love it. I seen that you used a jewelers saw to cut out the trees.

I looked up jeweler saws and I cannot figure out how you used to to get that effect. Where can I absorb the knowledge you possess?
Thanks.  I haven't had any formal training.  I just mimic what I see.  I drill small holes in the spoon with a rotary drill then I put the saw blade through and cut.  You can see a few pictures of how I do it in a blog posting I did.  http://functionalflea.blogspot.com/2011/01/work-in-progress.html
hope this helps.
9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Metal spreader mermaid pearl necklace 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.

10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Macrame owl necklace 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]
