Soldered Spoon Ring Process

If you follow along on Facebook or Instagram then you've probably seen some of the stuff I've been making out of vintage silverware. There sure are some pretty silverware patterns y'all!!!

I wanted to share photos of a backend look at one of the soldered rings I made from a silverware handle and some of the steps along the way.


This spoon had a long handle and I thought the long skinny area would make a great band.

I bent the entire handle into a spiral and cut the end off and put aside to make another ring later. 

I then cut the loop off with my jewelers saw, cutting two layers at once.

Tada! Now to file/sand and align the two ends.

All lined up and ready to solder! 

 I took my torch to it and soldered the join together.

Next, it was on to cleaning up my solder join. This takes a bit of time as you want it to match the rest of the ring. As you can see some solder filled the line in the middle that ran around the whole ring. I had to go in with my jewelers saw to add that back in.



From that one spoon handle, I was able to make these two rings. The very tip of the spoon handle wasn't too pretty so that's why I'm showing you the back side of the one on the left.

Anyhow just a look into a day in my shop! Hope you guys are having a great day!
