Thank you all for the nice comments.
I want to give this a try I have some silver forks.What tools did you use?
I use  two pliers and a glue gun (to hold the beads while I work with wire), but these forks are quite malleable.

Oh my gosh! These are amazing!
I just made a whole bunch of silverware bracelets and was going to try some wire wrapping similar to this because the metal got a bit scratched but I never thought about using beads. Thank you so much for sharing these!
Did you glue the wire and beads down or did you just wrap it around the fork?

The wire is just wrapped, I use glue to fix the big glass beads while I'm working because they have not holes, so they slip a lot

I really like these!  So you just used 2 pliers?  I was thinking a vise, wrapped in tape, might be helpful to hold the silverware while bending.  I saw an episode on DIY in which she used silver plated ware, and then used a propane torch to heat them up, while they were held in the vise, to make them easier to bend.  I don't know that would help on the heavier stainless steel.

I just got a score of silver plated stuff for 50 cents a piece at my favorite thrift shop.  I really want to try this!  These pieces are much more creative than what I saw on DIY.  I like the added beads and bent tines!!

I grabbed a couple of tiny forks and spoons, thinking they might make good rings...  The only mandrel I have is plastic though, and I am not sure that will work to bend them around...

The last one is my favourite. These are great - the curled fork tines are especially wonderful.

When she was good, she was very very good - but when she was bad she was fabulous.
