We have already stated that I am not QUITE the crafty girl. My crafts usually turn out more like something Emma did, then something a grown woman would do.
A couple of years ago, my sister Joanna, mentioned really wanting a spoon ring. She remembered my Grandma wearing one and would really like to have one. I honestly didn’t even know there was such a thing. But I came across a spoon ring at a craft show that I went to and immediately bought it for Joanna.
Nathan and I scoured local thrift shops for spoons. Let me tell you how THRILLED he was to be doing that!
my “Jeremy’s” tools, set up a workbench on the kitchen table and went to work.
I also realized that I needed to make a workshop somewhere else. The kitchen table wouldn’t do.
Jeremy kindly let me
have take over a part of the workshop in the basement. I’m actually wondering if he secretly knew it needed to be cleaned and if he let me have part of the room, knew I would clean it. I love to have this space because I can come and go as I have time and the mess isn’t somewhere that is seen.
I have thoroughly enjoyed making these rings over the past couple weeks. These are just a sampling of the ones that I have made already. Be on a look out for my friends and family members to see one in person. 😉
I am also looking for unwanted spoons or forks if you have any lying around.
I have a ton of ideas for necklaces and bracelets as well. Now I just need to find the time to make it all!
What I also really enjoy about this endeavor is that Tancy doesn’t know how to do it! So now she can teach me how to sew and I can teach her how to make spoon rings.
