Native Wings Spoon Necklace with Stone Bead on Circle - #5562
Native Wings. This necklace was inspired by one my mother-in-law gave me decades ago that is a sterling native American necklace. It was in the studio because we needed to replace its clasp. While it was sitting in the queue, it dawned on me that we could make one just as beautiful with all the pieces of silverware we owned.
I was not wrong. This necklace is a true collaboration between Matt and myself and it turned out gorgeous. The large "feather" panels are actually spoon bowl edges removed for another project. The circle shaped medallion upon which the turquoise colored bead sits, is yet another silverplate spoon scrap. The stone is set in a fork tine bezel and the dangling feathers are also fork tines. Hangs from a silverplate chain.
Please note, this item is an actual HANDmade silverware creation, not a cast replica of a handmade silverware creation.

For all our designs we choose wonderful vintage/antique silverplate cutlery. Once chosen, the pieces are modified and beautified by HAND; they are cut, drilled, filed and polished. We do not cast/mold any of our designs, they are all HANDmade, one-of-a-kind creations.
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 scratches or marks from use. But some wear gives the piece patina and personality. We do our best to disclose any condition issues of note.
