Tea anyone! Today’s post is just a quick one. It’s late in my day as I write this, and dinner still needs to get made. Just thought I’d share with you this cute little pendant made from a vintage silver teaspoon. On the flattened out face of the spoon, is a slice from a teacup polymer clay cane, with steam wafting up from the warm and cozy beverage.
I knew I was saving those spoons for a reason. ~Linda-G
What a great idea, Cindy! I am sure I still have some – horribly tarnished! – silver spoons somewhere… but we’re going to a huge flea market tomorrow and I am sure to find some there. I can’t wait to try it :-)) ~Caroline-H
I have a lot of old cutlery that I want to turn into jewelry. This would definitely help me put away the spoons! Please teach! Thanks sweetie! ~Suzanna-M
I think this is an ingenious idea! Pretty spoons can be found at just about any thrift store, too. The possibilities are endless. Your brain never shuts off, does it? :) ~Bonnie-B
I think this is great. I’ve been making silverware jewelry for awhile now and didn’t know what to do with the spoons. I started with polymer clay a year or two ago and really like it. Thank you for sharing your ideas. ~June-F
If you look real close at the photo above, you will see that the tiny little flowers on that teacup are made with the Clay Extruder Flower Cane Technique I talked about last week.
I’m thinking of making a teapot cane too. Wouldn’t that be cute to have a teapot on one earring and a steamy teacup on the other? Or maybe a charm or a pin where the teapot pours into a teacup that dangles below?
If you stretched the teacup to be long and tall and didn’t add the base, it could easily be a coffee cup as well. I know a lot of you like to hug a cuppa something warm and cosy while you read this blog. There is no reason why couldn’t capture that moment with a polymer clay bead or pendant!
Thanks for all these inspirational blog posts Cindy. I’m enjoying them and learning lots each morning with my coffee – and from the comments too! ~Aims
What a surprise to have my morning coffee, open the website and see my comment at the beginning of this post. ~Sam-M
