    … my wife is very creative and lately has been designing jewelry and other things. I am going to surprise her will this spoon. I am hoping she can hang it on a necklace she makes from scratch.

    Just plain fun!

    I carved it out of maple.

    That is just cool John. The proportions are spot on. Without the quarter for scale, I would have thought it was a full size spoon.

    What did you use to carve that tiny little bowl?

    John I like that one. I’ve made a few small scoops and the are fun. If your wife does make the necklace, be sure and post a picture..

    Thanks guys. She loved it. She is making a necklace pendant out of it. I will be sure to post photos of it.

    Greg, I carved the bowl with a #7 sweep 14mm straight gouge. I just follow the same steps Mr. Sellers shows in his video on making spoons.

    No photos of the jewelry yet, she is working on it. I took another photo to show scale with a common item.

    My wife finished the necklace featuring the tiny spoon as a pendant. She had a lot of fun with it. She is getting crazy good feedback on it.

    Overall a win/win. I get to carved something, she gets to make jewelry.

    Fantastic John – and John’s wife. I love all the spoons showing up around here. I still haven’t tried one, but I inherited a tone of carving chisels/gouges last week and spoons and relief carving are now on my list of things to learn.

    i'd prefer to make it myself

    Well done John and your wife.
    Necklace quite beautiful.
    I dare not show this to my other half as she is into almost every type of craft women mainly do she will have me making a load of those little spoons. The things she does jewellery/beading , patch work, cross stitch , machine and hand knitting, crochet, dress making, lace making even has done some weaving. There are probably others crafts as well.
    She is quit a talented lady
    Always making something.
    She runs a knitting club and also helps out at another art and craft club.
