Hello, I have been waiting to post my latest make until the recipient had opened it!
On 13/09/13 my brother married Zoe. It was a lovely day and several months ago I decided what I would make them for their first wedding anniversary.
I bought a solid silver spoon (hallmarked Birmingham 1928) and hammered the bowl flat.
I then punched into the metal the date of their wedding.
Now, I have to come clean, if you are thinking of making one of these, whilst not difficult I did mess up! The first one I made I accidently moved the punch as I hammered it which meant it produced a shadow secondary punch! So that means my first spoon will be sold for smelting down (doh!!). So my big tip would be TAKE YOUR TIME....do not rush!
I thought it would be a very individual present (without taking up too much room) but something to let them both know how much we think of them and how pleased they found each other.
