Recycled vintage spoon
This wonderful musical birdsong brooch is handcrafted and recycled from old, discarded, unwanted dessert spoon. 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. 😉
I have simply drawn the design onto the spoon with a fine nibbed marker pen. This rough sketch is then embellished and used as a approx guide line for my piercing saw work and delicate hand engraving.
Handmade and recycled in Cambridge.
Size : approx 60 mm * 30 mm
