Fall and Halloween


I've been working on listing fall and Halloween items on my etsy. Here is a sneak peek.



In response to the questions on the spoons, here is a close up picture.


The end of the wire is twirled into a loop. I then continue to make a few circles around that loop. Start at the bottom and wrap the wire tightly around the spoon and secure the end piece by bending it around the next wrap. Wrap and add beads tightly going all the way up the spoon and then cross over on the way down. I have seen several variations of this. You can even add lead free soldering wire. I like to use glass beads as they are dainty, sparkley and wash well. Need more pics to make your own beaded silverware? Just e-mail me through my profile.
