Instructions

  1. Small 103595 2f2014 07 28 091721 img 1995

    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.

  2. Small 103595 2f2014 07 28 091947 img 1996

    put the spoon in the vice so its secure, and saw the top of the spoon off, so you are left with the handle.

    now put the tube the same size as your finger in the vice and secure it. hold the spoon handle on the tube, and use the pliers and hammer to mould the handle to the shape and size of your finger.
