Of all the flatware that has been made, I find the most intriguing piece is the bon bon spoon (or nut spoon).  These gorgeous, intricate utensils were literally made to hold a single bon bon for dessert.  They tend to be the fanciest of the entire set of silverware.

Because I can't resist a piece this beautiful, I had to make it into something wearable.  This particular spoon is sterling silver and was made by Gorham in the pattern "Buttercup"

The bowl of this spoon is all crafted by hand and is pierced (sawed) out in little floral patterns.  The top edge of the spoon has a flowery texture that has  crafted in repousse-which is where the pattern you see is created by hammering or pressing from the reverse side of the piece.  The bowl of the spoon is deep, and the edges are flattened out.

I drilled a hole, added a jump ring and hung it on a 24" sterling silver textured elongated curb chain.
