small tray painted pink, glass beads, spoons and forks flattened with a ball peen hammer on a block of wood, and a sweet little saucer with roses and gold trim.


small tray, soup spoons, assorted glass beads, porcelain flowers glued to tray,a vintage glass chandelier prism in the center.


made with 2 forks wired together, spoons and glass beads.

Thank you sooooo much for the inspiration--I recently bought an entire set of silverplate just to get the vintage silverware box holding them. In the back of my mind was a vague thought on using the pieces for windchimes but didn't know exactly where to start. Now I do! Your azaleas are beautiful--my entire yard is ablaze with pinks, reds and whites and I think the camellias are ready for their third or fourth bloom.
