Jack's Pick: Recycled Spoon Pendant by sunshynesilverware

Each Friday I select an item created by a member of the Rochester NY Etsy Street Team(RNEST). What criteria do I use? I look for great looking items that I think are well made offered for a great price!

This week I have found a wonderful recycled spoon pendant called "Birds on a Wire" by Erin of sunshynesilverware!

So I don't really need to explain the simplicity of this item, do I?
It's a spoon!

But seriously, it's simplicity is what makes it wonderful! I love when everyday items like a spoon are transformed into something new. This humble spoon is elevated to art. Erin captures the simplicity with simple pictures or graphic designs.

I love the black and white of this silhouette of the birds. As Erin says in her description, the resin gives it a 3D effect. In fact, you can see the shadow of the birds behind the silhouettes in the background! I also like that nothing goes to waste in Erin's studio apparently, since she also makes pendants from the spoon handles as well!


  1. This is one of my favorite items in her shop! :)

  2. Wow! Thank you for the feature. It's so nice to have the support of local Etsians. I'm so proud to be a part of RNEST.
