playing with forks


I bought a new tool today, wire triple bail pliers, and I just couldn’t wait to try it out.  I have been trying to master bending fork tines for over a year, and just can never get them to the way I want them.  I never realized that these pliers existed until I read a fellow bloggers post this morning, so off to Michael’s I went.  I was lucky to get a 50 % off coupon by text yesterday, thanks again Michael’s !!

 

 

 

A friend has asked for a fork bracelet, so I decided to try out the pliers on her bracelet.  I found them very easy to use and am glad I made the purchase.  While in my workshop, I decided to make a necklace from a spare fork top I had cut off for a key ring, and I tried my first attempt at a money clip.  The money clip was made from a spoon handle, I don’t know how functional it is, but it was fun to make.

I also was looking forward to using my light box, and since I use 3 lamps, I thought I would adjust them to give a more dramatic look.  Have I mentioned that I love my light box?  lol

  1. What stunning photos! The light box works so well! I love those fork bracelets! Someone normally sells them at local craft fairs but I never have enough money! Do you need lots of specialist equipment to make them? I’d love to have a go eventually!
