I Actually Made Something

I bought this tomato spoon/server months ago at the auction.  It was with a whole bunch of silver plate stuff that I eventually polished and now use.  When I saw it I knew that I was going to make a pendant out of it.
Soooooo, the other night, I got out my hammer (I keep it hid from David) put the spoon between several layers of newspaper and beat it till it was flat.  This was simple as it was only very slightly turned up.
Then I bent it, which was fairly easy as I only had to use my hands. And voila!! I slipped it over this chocker.
And, I wore it to work the next day and received several complements.  I really should have made the bale a little higher and flatter......but at least it's laying on the kitchen counter anymore.

That looks gorgeous!
What a good idea, it really works well as a necklace.
Wishing you a very Happy New Year, hope 2012 brings peace and good health to you all.
