My grandmother Emma gave me her spoons about a decade ago now. Finally, I am getting around to making some pretty pieces from the sterling ones. I guess I sat on it for awhile for 2 reasons : 1) because "spoon jewellery" conjures up images of a wrapped fork or spoon around a wrist and 2) the question, "can I cut up my grandma's spoons?". I got out my saw with confidence, knowing it could be done with finesse and knowing that my grandmother would have wanted me to. These are a few of the pendants I have just begun, alongside some earrings and and perhaps a bracelet too.
