Spoon Charms

I've been making some more spoon jewelry. It is a lot of fun. I encourage everyone to try it! Here is a little vintage bird brooch that now resides inside a spoon. I made this flower out of an earring and part of a watch band and some rhinestones~ A vintage baby shoe that I added a blue rhinestone too. Here is a little wire nest cupped in the spoons bowl. I inked the spoon with some pink ink and then sealed it before adding the nest~I added pearls and a little cherub to this spoon. I also added some pink glitter to this one, which I sealed so it wouldn't come off all over clothing and your face. I am always walking around with glitter on my face!Here they are all together~ I've got about 10 more spoons cut ready to go. It isn't as fast to make these as you would think. Ok, for me it isn't anyway. I layer the glue to make sure its going to never-hopefully-ever come apart.

Just wanted you to know that I got a few spoon, $1 apiece, and I'm going to try the necklaces. I'll let you know how they turn out.

We did try using metal stamps to make herb markers on the bigger spoons. But we couldn't get a deep impression. We'll keep trying!
