It took me a while.. but I'm back posting something new! Well.. new.. old inspirations but some new stuff!
I have to start apologizing because this is going to be a long post.. so.. thank you for being patient! Kiss

I start with two keychains I've made for two friends.
The first is for a very twilighter friend of mine! She is completely in love with the movie, the books saga and, of course, Edward (the book Edward, she's not so interested in the actor)! I am ashamed.. really I am.. but at 25 years old.. I have to admit that I'm a Twilight fan also! Come on.. the perfect man who falls in love with a very normal, clumsy girl? Yes.. there's hope for everyone.. even for me! Wink So, I made this for her: the fork (read like "Forks" Tongue ) holds a little red apple (the forbidden fruit). In the ring there are a bronze heart with a little gold bead (the color of Edward's eyes) and some green (the meadow). At the end of the chain a little bottle with some... sparkle (like vampires do Tongue an idea that I stole from the site "devianart.com")! Behind the fork I wrote "Be Safe"!
Ok.. you can blame me! Tongue





The second one is a birthday present for a guy.. it's something special because this guy was my boyfriend... The main piece is obviously a fork, on which I glued on one side an old italian phon coin and on the other side an American dime and an half moon. At the end of the chain I put a little key and the sign "Air". Every piece has a particular meaning that I wrote in a dedication.





Than.. I want to show you a fork pendant that I made with clock gears. A little steampunk maybe.. or maybe only a little weird but it's one of my favourite (not the best pictures.. sorry)!




At the end.. a hair clip made with forks handles and a little red bead!




Ok.. finish!
Thanks a lot for watching and I'm waiting for your comments, critics, questions! Cheesy
Kisses

Love the hairclip especially! Do you hunt up sterling forks, or just use whatever is handy?

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.

Thank you all for your comments! Cheesy My favourite is the hairclip too.. I admit!

how did you bend the fork handles so nicely?
Eheh.. I had very soft forks so I used only pincers and imagination! Wink Actually the hardest part was to bend them in a way to coincide the end of the handles with the base of the hairclip..! A bit of luck!

Love the hairclip especially! Do you hunt up sterling forks, or just use whatever is handy?
Really.. whatever is handy! Normally I work with soft (cheap) steel forks.. is easier to bend them and not leave marks. I find them in flea market or cheap shop (very common are the forks with plastic handle.. very usefull for pendants or keychains).

Thanks again!
Kisses
