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?

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

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!
