I've never had a chance to post in the jewelery board before! (I'm a little more comfortable with a needle and thread).  On a whim I picked up a spoon from Goodwill to try and make a ring like I've seen on here and out and around the web.  I didn't expect it to come out too well, since I don't have any special jewelry tools or psychic spoon bending abilities.  Luckily, this spoon was really soft and easy to bend.  I just used a pair of pliers and wrapped the spoon in a towel as I worked.  I put a few scratches in it this way, but I don't mind too much.  I used my dremel to grind down the sharp end of the handle after the "spoon" part of the spoon came off (It just kind of popped off from being bend back and forth while I was curving the handle). Quick little 10 minute project while I was cooking the spaghetti for dinner!

Thanks for letting me share!

I would love to do some personal swaps.
I'm looking for handmade soaps, jewelry, and knit legwarmers/socks.
pm me if I can sew something for you!

This looks awesome!!!!! I have to go out and find a "soft" spoon too! (Or maybe I just have to look in my mom's kitchen ;-] ) You made it sound very easy Smiley

You did a fabulous job and all without fancy supplies. That's something to be very proud of! Pretty design in the spoon you chose, too. TFS
