On A Silver Roll

Since I am on a roll of sharing ideas
for displaying silverware,
I thought I'd share another.
I found this little spoon at the thrift store.
As you can see, it has an initial "J" on the handle.
I knew that with a little work it would make
the perfect pendant.

My hubby cut the spoon using a hack saw,
then filed the cut edge smooth.
Next he used pliers to turn the cut end under.
I simply strung a chain through the opening
and now I have
a unique monogram necklace
.
***For a bonus silverware idea,

That's a great idea! I have an "S" spoon like that, & I'll have to try this out! :)

i have an ankle bracelet made out of an old silver spoon. The bowl part of the spoon was cut off, similar to yours, and a silver chain and clasp were attached to each end. i just love it!
