As I was preparing for the Ocala Style Magazine Bridal Expo, I realized that I was struggling to come up with a rustic and chic “table place card” idea. I had recently begun making hand stamped metal necklaces, when it clicked! I needed to take my love for antiques, particularly antique silverware, and meld it with my newfound obsession for metal stamping! I raced to my local antique store and scoured for the best deals on antique spoons and knives! When I got home, I experimented with my metal stamping kit to realize that “Yes!” You can stamp full names and table numbers on them! The spoons have to be hammered flat – and the knives are the easiest to create! I placed them on a piece of rustic tree bark because I wanted to make them stand out for my display.
