Over the years I have found a variety of beautiful antique and vintage Sterling spoons and forks. My favorite are the highly detailed floral designs from the Art Nouveau era. I enjoy repurposing them into jewelry pieces, creating several keepsake pieces from loved one’s silverware.
Because I often only use the handle, I am left with the bowl of the spoon or the tines of the fork. Many these are just as ornate as their handles. It would be a shame to let them go to waste…

I found this very interesting (and substantial) vintage Sterling cuff bracelet online. I was a bit disappointed when I received it. Although it wasn’t terribly expensive, considering the solid Sterling is 5.75 inches long and over an inch wide, I didn’t care for the color of the stone and noticed the setting was incorrectly soldered and crooked!
So thanks to my trusty bench grinder and favorite ball-peen hammer, I was able to transform and create a distinct new piece. A touch more polishing and it’s good to go!!
