What a gorgeous spoon that must have been :D And what a gorgeous pendant it makes now! Though I have to agree with Minkymy about the abruptness of the top, it sort of also looks like it has been cut off of something. But still very nice!

Thank you! :) Hehe some of the spoons work a little better than others. This one does have a subtle curve at the top (I think the angle of this particular photo makes it look more straight than it is) but it's not as curved as I usually make them, there just wasn't enough room for the stone and jump ring otherwise. But duly noted :)

Haha okay but it looks great anyway :D Wouldn't it be possible actually to weld something else behind/on top of it if you'd ever have this problem again? Or wouldn't that work? I'm not a metalsmit so I have no idea if it would be possible to make such combinations ^^

well.. yes and no :D i could solder (jewelry term for welding) something to it, but it would complicate the process so much to get it to look good that i'd have to increase its pricetag by a lot to compensate =/ i try to go for a balance between pretty, high quality items and fast-to-make items, so that i don't have to charge so much for labor costs. :)

That makes total sense :D They're lovely as they are, but maybe once in a while a really bombastic piece would be awesome :D
Anyway, good luck with further spoon-and-possibly-other-cutlery-projects ^^

I love the shade of pink you chose, because it's flowery and there are flowers on your pendent.
However, the top edge is poking me in the side with a stick. I don't know what about it bothers me, but it does.

is it the top edge specifically, or the jump ring?
