I love repurposing silverware into beautiful necklaces, bracelets, earrings, etc. My mom and I have found silverware or jewelry pieces through various antique shops, thrift shops, garage sales, department stores and friends.
I brought my first silverware piece at a flea market to make a bracelet like I had seen at trade shows.
Someone loved the bracelet I made and wanted one for themselves. That started my adventure in silverware creations.
I manipulated two spoon handles to make the sides of a necklace to join with a swirling heart pendant which was converted from a scarf holder.
Silver plated chain was connected to the handles to finish the necklace with an elegant look.
I have sold this necklace, but I am making similar creations with different details.

This is one of the most striking pieces of silverware jewelry I’ve ever seen. These spoon handles are wonderful with the former scarf-holder heart!
An awesome repurposing project – thank you for sharing it with us!
Totally Happy Right Now!

Thank you, Rena. I am so excited about having my necklace on your website. I had to run and tell my partner the good news. It is cool to show a different way to repurpose silverware. There are so many things I can do and make it look elegant.
Thank you again.

This necklace (and just the idea alone!) is absolutely wonderful. It’s unique and gorgeous, and I envy your talent.
Thank you, Kaitlin. I love working with silverware, trying to use every piece of it I can. I will show new discoveries soon.
Normally I’m not one for large pieces, but this is really cool looking! I never though of using silverware.
