Here's two more silverware pieces I did recently.

First, I flattened a spoon end and hand stamped the word "HOPE" on it:


Here's a view of the whole thing:


I also made a pendant using the handle of a spoon. It's very art deco style:


View with the snake chain:


I plan on making more of the serving spoon bracelets after Christmas. I have to finish up my present making first! Wink

C and C always welcome!

I really love the idea of using spoons as necklace charms.  They look amazing!  Are they easy/hard to do?

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.......

It depends on the sliverware. Ones made out of actual silver are easier b/c they bend and cut easier. Stainless steel is a bit harder. I cut them with a tool called aviation snips (sometimes called tin snips). Sometimes it takes several tries to cut all the way through. Once you get them cut, flattening them out just takes a rubber mallet and a hard surface (concrete works best). I wrap a washcloth around the spoon head so it doesn't get chipped or craked and pound away!
