Recycled Spoon Brooch “This wonderful brooch is handcrafted and recycled from old, discarded, unwanted serving spoon found in local charity shop.” – The Growler


Recycled Spoon Brooch
This wonderful brooch is handcrafted and recycled from old, discarded, unwanted serving spoon found in local charity shops or house clearance outlets. The spoons themselves are 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 tree brooch. Holes are 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.

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..
