a pretty ring made from an antique spoon
i have seen several pieces of jewellery made from cutlery at craft and jewellery fairs, so i decided to have a go myself! it is very easy to make, and you get a one-of-a-kind ring that's completely unique to you.

  • How to make a recycled ring. Antique Silver Ring - Step 1
    Step 1

    firstly, buy a tea spoon from an antique store.
    preferably it needs to be made of silver (not stainless steel) as this is easier to bend and mould.

I've been meaning to do this! Would it work with a fork or knife maybe?
