I secretly (I guess not so secretly now) think of myself as Hector the Collector. One of the things I have been collecting for the past couple of years is vintage souvenir spoons. I love looking at the spoons and thinking about the places people visited. And they’re small, so it makes them easy to store…or at least it does when you don’t have a whole bunch of them. So I was faced with a dilemma: what do I do with all these spoons? Well, I decided to make jewelry out of them; pendants and rings and things. These are a few of my favorites of the moment. The Prince William one made me laugh :)
I am going to be listing these on my eshop later this afternoon (www.pasnak.com) should you be interested in acquiring one.
Objects I made from wax to be cast in bronze, each are about 10-20mm, all sprewed and ready to be lost in the kiln. From the left we have a cardamom pod, a pill, mortar (pestle will be aluminium), anatomic heart, carnation and a chip and dip bowl.
