Recycled antique spoon
Each pair of gecko earrings is hand cut with a traditional jewellers piercing saw from the ‘bowl’ of an old, discarded and unwanted vintage fruit spoon. While one dangles by its lovely curved tail, the other perches with its tail attractively sweeping downwards, both suspended on lovely sterling silver earwires. The are presented with the ‘donor’ spoon.
These spoons provide a gorgeous raw material that is not particularly valued as they are lost, discarded, unwanted and not part of a greater set. The geckos are individually free-hand sketched on to the spoons, then traced with the saw.
Handmade and completely recycled in Cambridge, UK. Complete with the finest sterling silver earwires.
Size : Approx 35 mm * 20 mm
Many of the necklace / pendant designs are complete. These designs have a sterling silver chain attached to the pendant from both sides. This design is perfect for looking in a mirror to fasten the necklace. It also makes a fabulous feature of the handmade hook catch (and star if chosen). The necklace length you choose includes the length of the actual pendant. Do not worry about the pendant dimensions we will take care of your order. Order the necklace length you would normally wear and the necklace you receive will sit in the perfect position..
