Instructions

  1. 1

    Clamp your fork (with teeth down) into a vice to hold it steady.

  2. 2

    Wrap tape around the teeth of your pliers. This will prevent it from scratching your fork.

  3. 3

    Bend the body of the fork into a curved shape using the pliers.

  4. 4

    Bend the teeth (tines) of your fork as desired. You can make a fun design, have the tines interlock, or whatever comes to mind.

  5. 5

    If you want to make a bracelet, then your fork should be ready to wear as soon as you bend it your desired shape. If you want to make a necklace, you will need to bend more forks with pliers to create the shape you want.

  6. 6

    Interlock your forks together to get your desired length by bending your tines together.

Tips and warnings

  • You can really use any fork you want, although different materials might react better to being bent and disfigured.
  • Use a torch to make your metal more pliable.
  • Beware, sterling silver forks are worth more as forks than bracelets!
