Hanging Spoon Pendant

About this design:

This piece was made out of an old ornate spoon. I cut the handle off of the spoon, used patina and then sanded it. I love how the silver markings came back out after sanding it.


Turquoise beads, spoon handle, silver spacer bead, patina.

    this set is gorgeous. I need to take another look at the pendant. but anything with turquoise is luscious in my sight. and the earrings are so cute as well.

    Beautiful. I’ve seen people use the bowl part of the spoon in necklaces before but not the handle. Fantastic with the patina.
