I created this amazing spoon key chain from the handle of a piece of vintage silver plate silverware. When I came across this set, I knew I had to have it! The design was so unusual and very beautiful. The rich detail of the pagoda is astonishing- from the top of the finial to the roof down to the balustrades and stairs- this could be an image off a painting! Beneath the pagoda and finishing off the handle are dozens of cherry blossoms. Exquisite!

I am always on the lookout for unique pieces and I had never seen anything like these! But there was a problem... they are small spoons. I'd need to work them in a different way to obtain the soft curvey turn I like. It would either work really well, or my dear husband and I would be adding more spoons to our box of "really cool coffee spoons for when we have a party!"

When I cut the bowl off the spoon I tried to get every little last millimeter of handle. Then I carefully turned the tip to create the smallest loop I could. I was so nervous- I really wanted it to work so I could share them with the world!

And it did work- beautifully!!

The result is a gorgeous keychain measuring 3 3/4 inches with the key ring
It is in very nice vintage condition with no scratches, dings or plate loss. The background on the front is done in a matte finish so it is not shiny- nor is it supposed to be.

Please note the picture of the back of the key chain. I work very hard and take great pride in achieving a smooth and rounded end- this piece will not snag your purse, pants or scratch your hands!!
