Great job Sweets.  And thank you for being so good at the replies and info.  It makes following your craftiness soooo easy.  I was wondering if heating could help with the handle bending?  I still need to get me a dremel saw. I have been putting it off but now am much more motivated.  I would love to see more of the spoon crafts you came up with.  Great job girlie!

Just a quick follow-up, I have no idea what kind of dremel saw to get.  I didnt realize there were so many.  What kind do you use/recommend?  Is it a bad idea to get a used one?  Thanks.

Wow, thank you SO much!  You are very, very kind! Smiley

Just from fussing with a blow torch on other stainless steel pieces before, I don't think it helped very much.  Perhaps it was just too hot too fast, but I was left with a hot & burnt spoon or fork. Cheesy  Or maybe I didn't let it get hot enough and freaked out too soon...hehe.  I would definitely like to experiment with heating them more when making fork bracelets as there are lots of bends on those.

Woohoo!  Can't wait to see what you come up with!  Be sure to start a Completed Projects thread for your piece! Smiley

I've only ever had one/use the same one.  Let me run out & see what brand it is.

I don't think there would be a problem with getting a used one at all.  Actually, I bet you could find a fairly inexpensive one on Craigslist.org, a yard sale or secondhand hardware shop.

Sweets, I love the spoon.  I have made a few of these pendants with my dremel.  I used the polishing tool and polish to clean up. 

As for where to find dremels - Walmart used to carry them, I got a $50 set in a small case.  Then I bought a variable speed with the router base, chainsaw sharpener, and lots of other bells and whistles.  Do yourself a favor and get a flexishaft if you dont have one, its like holding a pen. And THEN I found this $16.00 knock-off brand at sams clubearlier this year. Awesome deal with lots of tips.  Here is the one from Sams



Everything is interchangable with the dremel brand.

Thanks for all the wonderful info.  I had went to my local Goodwill about 2 months ago looking for spoons to mangle because I had come across a very inspiring website.  I got the spoons home and then didn't know what to do, so I put them away.  I will definately get them out and give it a try now that I see you all using your Dremels.  I have one, but didn't even think of using it.  

Anyways.  For some eye candy and inspiration, you should check out this website.

It is amazing.  I am just starting to mess with resin also, so I am not super excited.  It looks like my New Years Day is all planned out!
