I have a Craft Show coming up
in October and just making a few last minute items.
Here's an easy idea I have been working on-
I have collected a few
silver plated knives over the years
that I use for all sorts of things!
I have noticed that some knives have solid metal
handles and some are hollow.
We are going to use the hollow ones today.
Don't worry if the knives are tarnished.
We will clean them later.
We will take a hollow handled knife,
place it in my husbands vise along
with a soft cloth while we cut.
I mark my cut line with a fine point SHARPIE, I tend to cut crooked.
I used a Dremel tool to cut and sand the ruff edges.
along with the husbands' help...okay a lot of help-
to cut the handle into beads!
He claims he doesn't want me to to get hurt,
but I think he enjoys making things like I do!
I'm thrilled to have him help!
I cleaned the beads with metal cleaner.
The design on the silverware really pops!
I put the beads on different lengths of chain.
I think they make a pretty necklace.
Thanks for visiting!
