Newtons apple tree

Recycled spoon “A lovely, whimsical summer blossom tree brooch with wonderful credentials and a great conversation piece. Handmade and recycled in Cambridge.” – The Growler


Recycled spoon
A lovely little stylised apple tree brooch which would look fab on any attractive jacket. Inspired by the real thing which is fabulously opposite our stall at the All Saints Art & Craft market in Cambridge each Saturday.
Each apple tree brooch is the result of recycling an old dessert spoon. To recycle and reuse these spoons i firstly clean them up, then plan and sketch the design onto the ‘bowl’ of the spoon.

Tentatively, tiny holes are drilled through the spoon at marked positions. These allow me to feed the miniature hand saw into the middle of the spoon, thus enabling to cut away the inside sections. The outline of the apple tree design is then meticulously followed with the piercing saw. Once the cute wee tree is ‘freed’ from the spoon it is filed and polished to a true finish.

An integral and interesting part of the brooch is the spoon from which it was cut. This simple ‘donor’ spoon is also given a little ‘Hairy Growler’ treatment. It is transformed in to an wonderful Objects D’ Art which acts a lovely resting place for the brooch when not being worn. Both are presented in a lovely box.

Newtons apple tree, inspired tree brooch with wonderful credentials and a completely great conversation piece. Handmade and recycled in Cambridge.

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..
