Repurposed Baby Spoon Necklace

Last summer, I ran across these sterling silver baby spoons from Italy.  I don't remember how much I paid, and I had no idea what I was going to do with them, but I just couldn't pass them up.

They're beautiful.  Each one has a different headstock.

The other day, I found out a friend of mine is pregnant and will be having a little girl in the Fall.  How exciting!

And then I realized why I bought those pretty spoons last year.

The lucky spoon chosen for the Mother-To-Be necklace
Obviously, I paired the spoon up with pretty pink beads, because my friend is having a girl!  But just in case they're wrong, I threw in a couple of little blue swirl beads for good measure.  Also, my friend's favorite color is turquoise.

I had bought this heart link chain months ago at a bead show.  I love it so much, I've sort of just been hoarding it, as I often do with the things I love the most.  But I knew this was the perfect project to use it in.

Here's the finished product.
