Aren't they gorgeous! Apparently she made a matching beaded platter as well. Wow.
Well I decided I wanted to give these a try and I am so glad that I did. Here is how my first attempt turned out:
There are so many ways to go with different beads and heavier gauge wire. I can't wait to try another version. I started this set with 20-gauge wire and looped it to form a base.
I then just wrapped the wire around, threaded on a bead or two, positioned the beads so they would lay flat on the upper surface of the spoon or fork, and then continued to wrap and thread.
At the end I just tucked the wire into the back of another wrap of wire to secure it. I'm sure these are hand wash only, but I find them really festive and fun so I'm okay with them being a little fragile. I should probably make a brown set to match the napkin rings from last week.
I can't wait to use them.
This is where I'm partying:
