Spoon ring is a hot fashion accessory nowadays. It has been popular for years, but is growing even more popular now. It is unclear where this type of ring originated from, but its rise in popularity is often rooted in the 60’s and early 70’s.

These spoon rings are often sold by jewelry craft vendors at craft fairs or street sidewalks. Because silver is malleable and easy to bend, it is not hard to make a sterling silver spoon ring. The basic composition of a silver spoon ring is an antique spoon handle if you want something fancier looking, or a basic spoon handle for something simple.

Steps on How to Make a Spoon Ring

The beauty of spoon rings is that they are easy to make. You just need a few tools, but once you have them, you can pump on silver spoon rings all day long. Here is a guide on how to make a spoon ring. The steps are as follows:

  • Find a ring mandrel that is about the same circumference as your ring finger. The reason for this is to have the handle of the spoon fit your finger well.

  • There are many cutting devices, but you can use a hacksaw to cut off the “bowl” of the spoon. Be careful in this process and make sure not to cut yourself. This is probably the most dangerous part of spoon ring creation.

  • In this step, you need to smooth out the rough end of the spoon’s handle. The spoon handle is going to become part of the ring that will fit on your finger, so you want to make sure it feels good. A few tools you can use are sand paper, a metal file or an emery board.

  • Now you need to wrap the small part of the spoon handle around the mandrel. You can use pliers or any tool that works similarly.

  • This is where the ring will start to come alive. If you don’t have a mallet, you can use a hammer. Wrap the hammer with cloth around its head to keep it from scratching the ring. Either way, take the mallet or hammer and curve the spoon handle around the mandrel.

  • Begin tapping the spoon handle around the mandrel all around until the ring starts the form. This is essentially the finishing process that turns the spoon into a ring, creating your own spoon ring masterpiece. You can see the ring come to life as you are tapping away.
