Spoon Ring

This is a project I’ve been wanting to do for a while.  I’ve seen a number of rings made from silverware out and around on the internets, but I wasn’t sure about bending the spoon without special tools.  Luckily, I didn’t need to rely on any special mental powers.  This cheap spoon I found at Goodwill bent easily enough with a pair of pliers.  I tried to keep the spoon wrapped in a towel to prevent marks from the pliers, but it didn’t work perfectly.  I don’t mind a few scuffs and scratches though, I’m really happy with the outcome.


By the time I had gotten the handle shaped into the curve I wanted, the head of the spoon had already been bent back and forth enough that it wasn’t hard to snap it off (this stuff was really soft!).  I used my dremel to grind down the shap edge and buff and shine up the ring.


Here you can see the ring resting on what is left over from the spoon.  See how tarnished it was? uck! I just loved the design on the handle though.  I’m so happy it cleaned up all shiny pretty.
