Spoon Handle Bracelet
Old silver spoon
Half round pliers
Fine grade sandpaper
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.
