I decorate cutlery with wire, beads and a beautiful charm. I keep my sets the same, i.e. blue beads, with a leaf charm, red beads with a rose charm, etc. This helps when someone bought something and want to buy the whole set piece by piece.
I use lead-free wire, which is a must. Normal sead beads and charms. I decorate teaspoons, cake forks, cake lifters, sugar spoons, butter knives, salad spoon sets, Curry & rice spoon sets.
