I made this for a swap. Smiley  She just PM'd me to let me know she's received, so here it is! Smiley

Here's another one I made for a swap last year, too http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=117157.0  Lots of fun! Smiley

Sweets, all your cutlery jewellery is lovely, are they all silver or are there any in stainless steel? I can only find stainless steel and though I've tried to curl it, they are never as flowingly curly as your are! What's your secret? *lol* I'm suffering from abused muscles trying to bend stainless steel  Undecided

Sadly, the ones I've posted here are all stainless steel.  I've found a few pieces of real silver at a local antique mall, but I'm saving them (I don't know why Cheesy).  I'm afraid I'll ruin them, I guess!

No secrets here!  I wear gloves and use pliers - that's it.  I use a dremel to polish it up when I'm done and go over all of the sharp edges.

You must be stronger than me then *lol* either that or the cutlery I'm using is alot thicker! I'm also using pliers (no gloves though, hmmm...) and a faux Dremel. I'm getting a dab hand at cutting steel, but the bending is tough! I keep eyeing up cutlery wherever I go and my BF is paranoid that he's going to come home and there won't be anything to eat his dinner with  Wink

Ooh... try with gloves!  I got blisters from the first one I did because I had to bend so hard.
