I love being inspired from the designs on antiques, and these vintage spoons and knives are the perfect example. I found these at the Deseret Industries (a thrift store owned by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints) on 45th South and State in Salt Lake City, and they are divine. And at only $.75 each, they were a creative steal.
My original idea for these was to press the pattern into precious metal clay to make some fun jewelry. I have a feeling they might come in handy for other design projects, too.
