New pendants what i made for local Christmas sales etc. I use old teaspoons, silver/brass plates & wires etc. And this time i attach also some stones to my pendants. (Oval hematite/carneol cabochons and red toned Pauan/Abalone shell parts.)

More spoon pendants coming in January..

Mikä on tuon ihanan keskellä oikealla olevan riipuksen kivi on? (^.^)

Se ei ole oikeasti kiveä vaan pyöreäksi hiottu pala punaiseksi värjätyn abalone/paua simpukan helmiäistä. [link]

Thanks for the compliments. (And fave)

Lol.. Old teaspoons are probably not very good decorations for swords, but i have seen at least some celtic swords with nice looking stone settings, so maybe i try to make some thing like that in the future. :)

All my favourite sword-types are from viking/celtic/merovingian/anglosaxon time periods & cultures and they used to make quite decorated things..

Hoooooo-
Tosi tyylikkäitä. On sitä sepän käsistä muutakin kuin rautaa takomaan :)
Sanos millaista markkina kysyntää näillä sun töilläs mahtaa olla? On tainnut kumminkin harjoitusta vaatia näidenkin kaivertelu.

Lempparini on kukka keskeltä.

Cheers!

Heh.. No olen minä opiskellutkin korualaa paljon enemmän kuin varsinaisia sepäntöitä. Ensimmäiset lusikkakorut syntyivät viime talvena ja niitä on mennyt ihan mukavasti kesän myyntitapahtumissa. (Takorautakorujeni kysyntä on samalla vähän jo hiljentynytkin, koska nykyisin on myös tuommoista hienompaa tavaraa tarjolla.. :roll: )

Oikeastaan aika monet suomalaiset tekevät kierrätyskoruja vanhoista teelusikoista, mutta useimmat eivät viitsi yleensä muokata niitä juuri mitenkään vaan taivuttavat katkaistun varren päähän lenkin ja pujottavat sen ketjuun ja myyvät semmoisenaan.
Siinä tyylissä ei ole mielestäni kuitenkaan minkäänlaista "taiteellista kunnianhimoa", joten yritän käyttää aina mahdollisimman paljon aikaa siihen, että saan muokattua originaalilusikasta aivan eri näköisen ja se onnistuu melkeimpä helpoimmin kaikenlaisilla pintatekstuureilla tms.

Esimerkiksi siinä keskellä olevassa kukkariipuksessa on käytetty vanhan messinkilevystä prässätyn lusikan vartta, mikä oli ensin melko umpinainen tylsä lätyskä, joten sahasin lehtien/kukan väliköt ihan aluksi pois, jotta kukka muuttuisi realistisemman näköiseksi ja tein messinkilevystä myös ylimääräiset lehtimuodot sivuille, jotta saisin riipuksen muodon enemmän kolmiomaiseksi. (Yläosan taakse on juotettu myös pieni messinkiputkenpätkä ketjua varten.)

Suurin työ oli tietenkin siinä, että ne uudet osat piti kaivertaa dremel-työkalulla mahdollisimman saman näköiseksi kuin keskellä oleva lusikanvarsi, mutta kyllä tarkka katsoja silti varmasti huomaa, että mitkä kaikki osat ovat alkuperäistä lusikkaa, koska uudet osat eivät ole aivan yhtä punertavan sävyistä messinkiä ja lehtien ruodit eivät ole yhtä aidon näköisiä kuin keskiosassa. :)

As always Mikko, Very nicely Done. I look forward seeing more from you. I am hoping to be able to make a trip across the big water, after my child support is done. I hope I can manage to be able to pick up one of your pieces when I do. And while I have the chance, I want to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas.

Peace and Bright Blessings

Rod
