This popular knife bell necklace is made from upcycling a vintage silver-plate holloware utensil into a bell pendant. It is made by cutting off the tip of an old hollow handle. It is then ground and buffed until smooth. Then a clapper is made by attaching the clear glass and faux pearl beads to a silvertone wire thread through a hole in the top. It all hangs from a silverplate chain.
This necklace makes a delightful little tinkling sound as you move.

For all of our upcycled silverware jewelry and accessory designs we choose a wonderful piece of vintage/antique silverplate cutlery. Once chosen, the pieces are modified and beautified by HAND; they are cut, drilled, filed and polished.
Condition: Please note, this is an antique item that was once used as a utensil. As a result there may be some wear to the silver-plate, fine scratched or marks from use. But some wear gives the piece patina and personality. We will do our best to disclose any condition issues of note.
