Bring in your silverware and we will use the traditional metal smithing techniques of cutting, filing, sanding, hammering, bending, and polishing to turn your old flatware handle into a new wearable ring.

NOTE: Steel and stainless steel cannot be used. A selection of spoons will be on hand for purchase in case a student doesn’t have a spoon made of workable metal.
