This Thursday, Sept. 13, 2012, I have been invited to be a vendor at the NC Secretaries’ Conference.  Above are just a few of the items that I will be selling there.  (silverware windchimes, silverware ornaments, cupcake/candle saucers, magazine/map envelopes, etc.)

Upcycled Silverware Windchime Teal Blue Red Beads

Upcycled Silverware Windchime Teal Blue Red Beads

Making this upcycled gravy boat windchime at White Lake, NC made me think about all the “boat” rides I have gone on there or somewhere else.  Many days in my youth were spent on a boat in either Jordan Lake, NC or Badin Lake, NC.  Days were spent fishing, tubing, tanning, and relaxing.

Yes a gravy boat is quite different than a fishing or sports boat. But still the same the memories come back.

This windchime was made with love by using upcycled silverware and gravy boat.
There are two forks and two knives attached by fishing line. The line is adorned with red and teal blue beads. The tines of the forks have been bent for additional attraction.

The flower molds on the handles of the knives make this a great piece of art to hang in a garden. This windchime could be hung up inside or outside.

This would make a great gift for any occasion.

Silverware Windchime {Silver Platter Green Beads}

Standard
Silverware Windchime {Silver Platter Green Beads}

I enjoyed making this Silverware Windchime  {Silver Platter Green Beads} at White Lake, NC on vacation this week at our family’s house.  I was inspired to use the green beads because of the greenish tent glimmering in the lake water.  This windchime was so soothing to listen to as we swam nearby or sat on the pier at the Murray Lake House.  I imagine a buyer placing this on a pier by the water. (Though it could be placed elsewhere as well.)   Enjoy the slideshow. If you are interested in purchasing this windchime please visit Twice As Loved on Etsy.
