Today, we made a ring.
Not that kind.
We get to keep this one.
Cat and I saw this pin a few weeks ago and knew that we HAD to do it.
I stopped by my local thrift haunt and scored a bag of fun silverware
for 52 cents.
This pin cost me 52 cents.
Now, I went into this project knowing that it would be a bit difficult.
The tutorial clearly states to use sterling silver.
But, where am I going to get sterling silver for 52 cents?
I worked with what I had.
I measured my finger with a paper towel,
measured the spoon against it and
snipped the spoon.
Papa smoothed out the rough edge for me.
Papa helps smooth out a lot of my rough edges. 😉
By chance we had this metal tube hanging about.
We took turns hitting the spoon against it.
This is where sterling would have been waaaaay easier to use.
But hey, a little hard work and a little while later…
Something fun and one-of-a-kind.
Not bad for our first try!
We may do a few more of these this evening.
16 more pins to go.
