Spoon Triangle Necklace by Doctor-Gus
Spoon Triangle Necklace
This necklace has been crafted out of six antique sterling silver-plated spoons. They are linked together to form a silvery triangular focal point to this statement necklace. 

Now, I wonder what I could do with 50 linked spoons... a suit of spoon armor perhaps?

The Flying Rose by Doctor-Gus
The Flying Rose
This necklace has been crafted out of several antique sterling silver-plated forks. I call it The Flying Rose.

Two expertly shaped antique forks suggest the outline of wings. From this is suspended a antique fork featuring a beautiful rose design, all of which hangs from a sturdy chain. 

The result is a delightful flowery recycled piece of eco-chic wearable art. A true fashion statement, This stunning neck wear is one of my favorites, hopefully it will make a great addition to your jewelry collection or costume.

Once these forks were a prized possession in someone’s household, admired for their craftsmanship and as a status symbol. Now that their time of usefulness has come to an end, eclipsed in favor of newer stainless utensils, I have seen fit to retire them for use as beautiful jewelry to be showcased as a work of art in its own right!

Magnolia Pattern Spoon Statement Necklace by Doctor-Gus
Magnolia Pattern Spoon Statement Necklace
Here is a delightful tribal steampunk style necklace crafted out of a vintage sterling silver plated spoons.

This is the "Magnolia" pattern made in 1951. I've cut, drilled and polished the pieces to create a wonderful wearable upcycled piece of earth friendly art.

The fork tines remind me of teeth and the central spoon suggestes a sort of skull shape. It gives a somewhat tribal feeling to the necklace.  

Each recycled statement necklace I create is different. Even if I bend the forks and spoons into similar shapes, every piece reacts in a unique and often unpredictable way, especially when I add stones to them. No two I do are ever quite the same. You can truly say you are wearing a one-of-a-kind work of art.

Flying Fork Flower Necklace by Doctor-Gus
Flying Fork Flower Necklace
This necklace is crafted out of two antique sterling silver plated forks from which is suspended a gorgeous acrylic crystal flower.

I've twisted and curled the tines around to suggest the image of wings, or possibly tentacles? You decide whether it is flying or swimming...

Whatever the case I'm sure you'll agree that it is an eye-catching statement necklace!
