Spoon Handle Bracelet

What you need

Old silver spoon
Piercing saw
Half round pliers
Fine grade sandpaper
Silver polish



Instructions

Old silver spoons make attractive pieces of jewelry and can often be purchased at jumble sales or in markets.

Pick a spoon with a long handle for this project, as it will give your bracelet more size.

Start by sawing off the scoop of the spoon and file down the sawn off edges until the handle is nice and smooth.
Use the fine grade paper to sand away the file marks.

With a little muscle bend the spoon handle around to make a bracelet shape. If you have a round pipe that you can use to bend this over it will help to get a smooth overall even shape. Otherwise just keep working the spoon handle till you are happy with the shape.

    If the spoon is way too hard to bend yourself, try putting it over a gas stove, using gloves so your fingers don’t get burnt and safety first! That way it will soften up and make it easier to bend around a rolling pin or something like that, and you could use a rubber mallet to pound it around the rolling pin too??? Then just buff it all up and put little pretties all over it! and voila and pretty spoon bracelet! Hope this works, good luck to all!! ;)

    I’ll give it 4 stars, it’s really cute, but I haven’t tried it yet.
