Playing with my Silverware

Mom aways said don't play with your food but nothing was said about the silverware! Thrift store, old silverware, wire, jewelry bits, goodies and a little E 6000 glue.  Voila, art! Actually it is also lots of fun.  I was visiting two of my sisters in Washington and we took a collage workshop. I made this spoon for Marcy our instructor.  See the row of three beads in the bowl of the spoon? That's us. I call this one "Three Sisters"

I really like the way these turned out.  The different types and colors of the metals make them very pleasing to my eye.  The long spoon was used in the collaged cigar box I did with Marcy.  I will post the cigar boxes later.  Just another reason to collect and save broken bits and pieces.
