Necklaces crafted from Silver Antique & Vintage Fork & Spoon HandlesDecember 18th, 2008 in member junk
I'm sure you've seen Key Rings crafted from old silverware. Well, my husband and I while looking at a Key Ring realized that old flatware is so beautiful that the handles would make beautiful necklaces! I wore one to work one day and after selling several pieces to co-workers, we started selling them at craft shows. It's wonderful to hear customers say, "My Grandmother used to have this silverware"!
We also enjoy finding pieces the are so dirty, you just have no idea what they really look like, and then taking them home and shining them up to be suprised by their beauty! I think my husband secretly likes hiding out in our little shop with a little spinning wheel he put together...just cleaning and enjoying music!
We sell the pieces on silver chains, as well as, black, brown and beige leather cords. The younger people seem to like the leather and it really makes the piece pop!
I've been thinking about selling them on Etsy.com and would be curious if other members of JunkMarket have had any luck doing so?
