Until it breaks.If its a cheap spoon,it will be much easier to break.

Use your forceps to make a hook on the part where it broke.

I wear the one with the frog very often and only a few of my friends noticed it was a spoon in his previous life...

  4. Kids and teens??!! How about us adults? I would love to make some of these. Did you use ModPodge or gel medium? Are the backs decorated too? I have so many questions? And many family members that I think would love a special spoon necklace for Christmas and now would be the time to start. What did you do with the parts you brokle off?

  6. @Tess I used gel medium,but you can use any paper glue mixed with water.I left out the back,but it would look great covered up. :) Oh,and from the parts that I broke off I`m planning to make some rings.
    @Gaby I love the family pictures idea! :)

    If you make a spoon pendant please send me a picture on my email,I would love to see it!

  9. You may be able to flatten the spoon with a hammer. These will colour up beautifully with alchol inks as well. Some sort of varnish over the alchohol inks would protect them if you ear this on bare skin or on top of a textured sweater.

  18. Hi Violetta,

    I just wanted to let you know that I'm launching a new site that's a collection of different jewelry projects, www.AllFreeBeadedJewelry.com, and that I linked to this awesome project:
    http://www.allfreebeadedjewelry.com/Jewelry-for-Kids/Spoon-Pendant

    I would like to know if I can link like this to you, including your photo, in the future or if you would even be willing to allow me to post projects in full on the site - full credit will always be given to you, of course. It would be yet another source of traffic to your blog. Once you have 2+ projects on the site I can start you a designer profile where you can tell everyone a little about yourself and include links to your blog, etsy store, facebook, etc.

    The site is still under construction, so if some things seem weird they will be fixed. Once the designing part is done the site will be more akin to our sister sites AllFreeSewing.com and FaveCrafts.com.

    Please let me know, I would love to work with you further.
    Thanks!
