  • How to make a recycled necklace. Sugar Spoon Necklace - Step 1
    Step 1

    Punch a hole in the handle of the spoon. When you use ANY hand-powered punch remember that slow and steady is the way to go. Don’t try to power through the hole making or you’ll end up with bent punches! Grip the punch and s-l-o-w-l-y put pressure on it to make the hole.

    The next thing to do is put your message in the spoon. I went for the obvious but sweet ‘sugar’ in the bowl of the spoon. Big hint; start your word in the center of the space and with the center letter of the word. You’ll have instant spacing success!

    With your round nose pliers wire wrap a 2” section of 20 gauge wire and thread it through a tulip bead cap. The 10 mm pearl will fit just inside the cap, or you can gently squeeze the petals of the tulip to make it fit. Wire wrap the remaining 20 gauge wire at the top of the bead cap and trim any excess.

    Then you can use the fabulous square jump rings to attach the charms to the loop. I love those square jump rings. They are an unexpected shape AND super strong!

    Use double jump rings to attach both halves of the Purse and Umbrella toggle. I like doubling up the jump rings when I use thinner gauges so that they are extra strong and give the piece a more finished look.
