ALTERED SPOON


This swap was for an Altered Spoon.  So off  on the hunt to find spoons that were inexpensive, vintage with a patina and would "work".   I knew I would be making more than 1 as so many ideas were bouncing around in my head.  I  had "the excitement" I feel when I KNOW it is going to really be something I enjoy....and I hope the recipients enjoy what I do. 

You can see from the 2nd or bottom photo how I have bent the spoon and then used the rounded portion as my "canvas" , so to speak.  On the back of the handle portion, as far to the top as possible to handle the weight I glued on the pinback.

On the Yahoo Group I belong to I suggested a neat way to display this; if they didn't want to wear it,  would be to staple some regular ole' door screening to the back of a frame and pin the spoon onto the screen.  They could even further adorn the frame.... This is how I am going to do
my next spoon..  It will be framed and I have the perfect frame that I picked up when looking for spoons.  Vintage, irregularly shaped, and I can do a patina with it and some paints or ink.....
