Sterling Silver Fretwork Dragon Spoon Necklace with Peridot Gemstone
Using a traditional jeweler's hand saw, I made this necklace by piercing out a dragon from a vintage sterling silver spoon bowl. At the neck of the dragon, I set a genuine marquise shaped green peridot stone. I then sanded and polished the spoon before adding a sterling jump ring and suspending it from a 28-inch sterling chain. The pendant is about 2 1/2 inches long and 1 1/8 inch wide. The result is a pretty one-of-a-kind necklace upcycled from an old, worn piece of sterling silverware.
