I create this upcycled art bracelet by forging the tines of a vintage sterling fork into a heart-shaped pattern, and shaping the length of the fork into a rounded cuff band.
I create it from a very rare and special antique sterling silver dinner fork, cast by the Watson Silver Company in Attleboro, Massachusetts around 1920. The fork, Watson's King George pattern, features a breathtaking fleur de lis pierced design in the handle. This casting technique is variably called piercing, pierced, cutout, openwork, open work, etc.
I keep searching for more dinner forks in this pattern, but I can't find any more on the market. This piece is a rare find, indeed.
The bracelet will arrive packaged in an attractive jewelry gift pouch, making a convenient, unique and presentable handmade gift.
I design the bracelet for easy and stylish wear, with the fork tine sculptural element centered atop the wrist. I carefully forge and finish the bracelet to include no sharp points, so that it won't damage your skin or clothing.
The bracelet fits most wrists, from size 5.5 to 7.5.
HOW TO WEAR:
Bend bracelet open wide enough to slide wrist through comfortably, squeeze to close.
Bending won't hurt the bracelet as long as it's not bent to extremes repeatedly.
ORDERING & SHIPPING:
Within 2 days of purchase, I will deliver your order to the US Postal Service for shipping.
