Recycled Spoon Brooch
This lovely, uplifting, symbolic little brooch has been hand cut from the ‘bowl’ of a wonderful vintage dessert spoon. As with most pieces i create, the design is hand sketched on to the surface. The rough outline drawing is meticulously follwed with an extra fine jewellers saw.
A few other simple, traditional tools is all that is needed to transform an unwanted, discarded, dessert spoon into a contemporary, desirable brooch.
You are welcome to request this brooch with or without the olive branch! The remaining spoon handle is also given the Hairy Growler treatment. A little detail, time and patients transforms the remnant. This is also included as a momento of the brooches humble origins! A fab talking point, a little home for the brooch when not being worn and wonderful green, ethical and original gift.
Handmade and recycled in Cambridge.
