Recycled antique spoon
This beautiful tree brooch has been carefully handcrafted from the ‘bowl’ of an antique dessert spoon. These lovely old spoons are fab to work with and a perfect raw material to recycle given that so many are found ‘ditched’ in local charity shops!
Each one of these trees is a complete pleasure to create and is totally unique, individual and 100% green and ethical!
Each tree is carefully outlined on the surface of the spoon. This is slowly traced with a piercing saw. The final shape is filed and polished to perfection. An old spoon recycled into a gorgeous, wearable brooch.
An integral and interesting part of the brooch is the antique dessert 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.
Size : Approx 55 mm * 40 mm
