Gourmet enthusiasts/ food snobs will insist that caviar may never be eaten with silver utensils because silver will react with the delicate berries and make the caviar taste...metallic. Therefore a piece of rather obscure flatware called caviar spoon is created especially for serving caviar. Caviar spoons are usually made from mother of pearl shells. They are not terribly expensive to buy online, but alternatively you can eat some mussels:

...and carve them into spoons. Mussel shells are extremely easy to carve with a Dremmel tool.

To make some non-perishable (and much cheaper) caviar, all you need are round beads, preferably semi-opaque stone or glass beads, glued onto the spoon. I then glued a pin back onto the back of the spoon to make a caviar pin.

If you are not a fan of power tools, you can use a whole shell (I used an oyster shell here) to make a caviar dish (again with stone "caviar"). The scallion is made from thin strips cut from a Garnier Fructis shampoo bottle.
