Sterling Silver Fretwork Swallow Bird Spoon Bracelet
Using a traditional jeweler's hand saw, I began this necklace by piercing out a swallow bird in flight from a vintage sterling silver spoon bowl. I then sanded and polished the spoon before connecting the double link bracelet chain. I made the large, heavy toggle clasp by hand just for this solid sterling silver bracelet, which is 7 1/2 inches long. The spoon is 1 1/8 inches wide. This is a pretty one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry upcycled from old, worn sterling silverware.
