Recycled Spoon Brooch
This wonderful brooch is handcrafted and recycled from old, discarded, unwanted soup spoon found in a local charity shop. The spoons themselves are lovely old vintage antiques. However, they are usually single items which have little value to collectors as the original set is lost over the years. Similarly the ‘odd’ pieces of cutlery are of little interest to anyone else in the market for eating utensils. 😉
Each spoon is reborn as a beautiful bird on a berry laden branch brooch. The design is sketched out to the spoon and then carefully hand engrave and carved. Holes are then drilled and sections are pierced away with a small jewellers hand saw (see workshop page). The end result is quite pleasing.
Handmade and recycled in Cambridge.
