Picture of Spoon Ring - DIY Tutorial
Prise: 1 -5 Dollar || Time: 15min - 1h || Difficulty: Easy

In this tutorial we are going to go true the steps for how to make a spoon ring!

You will need:

  • A Silver spoon
  • Mandrel
  • Rubber/Plastic Hammer
  • Wooden Block
  • Polish disk, Polish and a screwdriver.

Make sure that your spoon does not contain any nickel!

In this tutorial I am using spoons that is not made out of silver. Instead I using spoons that where "softer"/easy to bend for the propose of training. If you have a spoon that you still want to use and is not made out of silver, you can use clear spray paint to protect your skin from the metal.

Step 2: Getting the "bend"

Picture of Getting the

We are starting of this project with a basic tee-spoon "1.". To get the bend started I place the spoon against the mandrel and by hand force bend the ring as much as I can "2.". When you have bent the spoon as much as you can it is time to remove the "spoon part". Use some pliers and cut it of. Make sure that you do not cut to much, it is better to have extra material which you can remove later then the other way around!

You need a file to remove any sharp edges!

This was a good tutorial, the only problems I encountered were stupid things I did. I cut the spoon before bending and it made bending the handle really difficult. I plan to find some more old spoons and make more of these.

Say I don't have a mandrel, can I just use a mettle pipe?

Yeah! Or even a piece of round wood would work. Just make sure it´s the same size as your finger :)
