Description

This whimsical seahorse pendant is made from the handle of a vintage brass spoon that features an ornate enameled design. It measures 3/4in x 2 3/4in.

These spoons are mostly European, usually coming from France, Russia, and Turkey, and can be pretty old – some go back to the early 1900s! The brass was stamped by machine, and then an artist would fill all the depressions with colorful combinations of glass enamel. This style of enameling was known as champleve.

To make the pendant, I cut the bowl and shank off the spoon, grind and polish the cut edge smooth and then attach a pin catch, to let it function as both a pin and a pendant! Since this is a real vintage item, there may be a few scratches and scuffs, or some minor chipping and crazing of the enamel. Consider it part of its vintage charm!

A 17″-18″ black satin cord necklace is included. If you would like a different color/style of necklace – see the last photo for available colors and styles – please put the color you want in the “Message to Seller” section. I have a limited selection of longer lengths available, please convo me if you need something longer!
