I thought it would be hard to bend silverware, and so I think I unconsciously avoided doing these. But with simple jewelry tools, you can easily bend the prongs of a fork, and turn it into something fabulous. I made a dragonfly, one of my favs.

cuttlebug heart from provocraft die
I rolled the antennae by letting 2 prongs in the middle break off, and bent the two outside ones down for legs . I added a chain with a little Cuttlebugged heart. This was so easy I could hardly believe it. You can experiment with different bends and visit YouTube for altered silverware videos. I am taking pictures with my Canon 7D and a Macro lens. Hope you enjoy.
Above is the card I sent to my Swap Partner with her dragonfly fork.
And speaking of Swap partners, this is what I received - an altered spoon, with handles incorporated into a necklace , with matching earrings on a wonderful tag, and a beautiful card.
So grab your silverware and turn it into something creatively unique and simply marvelous.
I will respond to all of your comments if you have any questions or just want to say hi.
