1901 Silver Spoon

This is my second attempt at a spoon ring. The first attempt i used a steel spoon and was much harder to work with and eventually cracked when forming. I found this spoon at a local antique shop and is sterling silver. Like in the video silver is a much much MUCH softer metal and easy to work with. I made this one without a vice and i think i will by one before my next attempt. I had the most trouble with the sizing of the ring. Everytime i tried to pound the ring into a perfect circle it would grow to a bigger size. I expect the vice is going to help that. Well now to go on the hunt for another spoon!
