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.

Great job!

I used a jeweler's saw to cut the trees out of the spoons.

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.
