So I got a spoon ring at our local flea market and have absolutely been in love with it. My husband has had to hunt down several more for people who have seen mine and wanted their own. So he decided he would try to make his own from this bag of awesome old silverware that we scored at (again) a flea market. Well, he didn't have any of the tools you're supposed to have to make rings, but instead he made these lovely pendants. They're not super fancy, but I love how they just stand on their own, ya know?!

(Please excuse the numbers... I was doing something and forgot to remove them b/f posting.... Undecided)







(And here is my favourite. It has acorns on it  Grin)

They're very cool.  You could make super kitsch ones with souvenir spoons!

Ohhhh!  I love that idea.  Ive got so many spoons that were my Grandmas.  Id love to make pendants from one of them.  Id hate to mess up on it and ruin such a sentimental item though, as they were ones she collected.

One does not simply walk into Mordor. Its black gates are guarded by more than just orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep. The great eye is ever watchful. It is a barren wasteland, riddled with fire, ash, and dust. The very air you breathe is a poisonous fume.......

Ooh, I like the idea of souvenir spoons! *Is making another trip for more silverware soon* I saw the awesome resin jewelry people have been making with the spoon bowls, and I went and bonked the DH for not keeping them. That's what I'd like to try next.

We didn't have any "messed up pieces" but that's not to say it couldn't happen. And then that would be really bad. But you could always practice on junky silverware, and then use your grandmother's spoons. That would be a great way to use them.

Some of those look like they could be sterling silver. Probably not.
I can't believe he threw away the spoon bowls...  Huh  Roll Eyes  Shocked  Tongue  Angry

Oh what a clever idea! I have this one spoon I've had and saved since my childhood because I love the design on the handle maybe I'll have to try this Smiley

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

I absolutely love these, especially the one you are wearing at the bottom. I think I have some silverware in that pattern. I love silverware... how come I can only find a reason to use it at Thanksgiving and Christmas?

I swap, so in crafting terms I guess that means I put out... You?

Thanks everybody for all the nice comments! And yes.. he threw the bowls away.  Cry Oh well.

I don't think any of these are sterling, he usually scoops those up and sells them just as spoons/silverware. I think they are plated, though.

Lady Llanalla - the one I'm wearing has the cutest acorns on the front and the back. I'm so jealous if you have a bunch of this pattern  Cheesy
