How to make spoon jewelry
Many people ask “What is the best material for making fork andspoon jewelry, sterling silver flatware or silverplate flatware”. A few factors must be considered when making spoon jewelry. A sterling silver fork or spoon can be used to make spoon jewelry but can be quite expensive. Sterling flatware is not as strong as silverplated flatware. Silverplated flatware is used in most cases when making fork and spoon jewelry mainly because of its affordability and its strength. I have had many conversations with people who have had sterling spoon jewelry break either in the process of making the jewelry or after wearing it for some time.
A lot of flatware patterns were only available in silverplate. Something to ask when trying to identify authentic spoon jewelry is “Was this pattern available in sterling or silverplate?” this will help in separating authentic spoon jewelry from imitation or cast spoon jewelry.
