First of all, this isn't an original idea - I saw something similar on Etsy and I instantly wanted to try and make some!!
  I bought some old silver plated spoons months ago, then kind of lost my nerve.  I don't have any real experience with cutting metal and I had visions of shrapnel wounds, but I finally bit the bullet and gave it a try.  In the end, the hardest part was stringing them up so that they were visually pleasing and actually chimed.  I've already sent them off to my sister - she asked me months ago if I could make her a wind chime.  Smiley  I bet she'll like 'em!
  Hard to get a good pic - but you get the idea...

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.
