A side view which shows how I overlapped the bottom of the spoon over the top edge.
The front of the spoon, which could be embellisned with all sorts of things.
Each spoon has a different design which makes them unique.

I hand forged these napkin rings from vintage silver spoons.  I flatted the spoons first and then little by little hammered them into a napkin rings.  I love that they are simple yet elegant.

AndrewCampbell writes: I have to really applaud you on this ingenious idea indeed. Who would have thought an antique piece of silver spoon could be bent and modified by a few degrees and voila, you have a completely different use for it. It is really beautiful which looks classy and perfect for special occasions and events. Posted: 2:59 am on October 19th

And the bits where the spoons are can absolutely be engraved or something to make them personalised for someone that you love. Very neat for something you can make in the comfort of your own home.
