Give Peas a Chance

Happy Saturday! :-)


I am so excited about a new item I listed this week that I decided to blog about it. It's a necklace, and it's called "Give Peas a Chance".



The idea was born one afternoon when I was browsing through Etsy supplies, looking for some type of silver pendant - I can't remember what it was. That's when I found this awesome pendant. It's not a real spoon (not quite big enough and too thick), but it looks like one. I immediately thought how cute it would be to attach some green pearls to it to make it look like a spoonful of peas. I bought the pendant from redvelvet, then found  the perfect "peas" at QualyBeads. I went to Fusionbeads for the chain and findings. When all my supplies arrived, I was a little disappointed to find out that the gunmetal-finish headpins that I had planned to string the pearls on were too thick. Instead I used eggs to oxidize some thin sterling silver headpins, and that turned out just perfect! And as a matter of fact, I used the gunmetal headpins to make matching earrings. Hmmm, I wonder what other "vegetables" I can put on a spoon........


  1. Cool! I have a silverplate baby spoon sitting on my desk. Can you use silverplate?

  2. That necklace is just awesome!

  3. I don't know why you couldn't use silverplate, or just any kind of spoon, if you cut off part of the handle and then bent it back.

  4. you should proud of yourself about the necklace design idea.
