Jugenstil Spoon by Cinniuint Jugenstil Spoon by Cinniuint
Jugenstil spoon I made from forging (hammering metal into shape, NOT casting) Sterling silver. After drawing down design on the handle, sawed it out by hand (jesus that was a bitch.. it's nearly 4 millimetres thick close to the bowl)

Got a 70% good on it.. the back is still a disaster.. didn't have time to got all the oxide spots out.. but I don't really care now XD

Wow very handsome. I like your work. I am an intermediate silversmith and am taking classes. I have several silver spoons I've been wondering what to do with. I think I might play around with pierce work. Although I know how you feel about sawing, when the silver is thick it seems to take forever! Ugh. I was just sawing a piece, the handle off the spoon to use as a ring shank. Then I will flatten out the spoon part for a base of a bezel. Keep up the wonderful work. :)

General things we do to silver spoons is melt them down to cast rods or plaques and work from there starting from scratch. Then the sky is really the limit :)Oh, and check your silver properly on what grade it is, because anything lower then 925dz should not really be used for jewellery because of the high copper content and allergies concerning it. Good luck!

Thanks for the reminder. I'm working with copper, silver and brass and soon nickel. We will be a doing a "marriage of metals" class in mid January. Looking forward to that. I know I can't stamp or tell anyone the spoon jewelry is 925dz. I let them know I work with mixed metals. Most people today are very interested in it. :)

I'd stay away from nickel if I were you, it's almost never used in the jewellery business any more because so many people are allergic to it. As soon as someone hears there's nickel in it they won't buy it because of this :(
