My obsession of silverware jewelry doesn't stop... I think I seriously need some help! Tongue
Joking... but I'm in love with this kind of craft art and, after the fork bracelets (that I have already posted here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=254283.0) I have wanted to try some experiments again with forks, wire, beads and some stuff that I found around the house.
Here's the result... a fork necklace with a typical Egyptian amulet, the green/blu scarab beetle, that a friend of mine has brought me from Egypt. As I know this kind of amulet was th emblem of re-creation, and symbolized the evolution of the soul through eternity... yes.. I haven't so many claims... but if so... well, better for me!  Wink
Unfortunately the scarab bead has two small holes front and back, I think for passing a lace. I wasn't able to cover them... and I didn't want to run the risk of damage or destroy it because it's very fragile.







Hope you like it! Let me know what you think! Cheesy
Thanks for looking guys!!

Super job!  Love the curled tines on the fork and how you twisted accent stones around them Smiley
