How to Make a Fork Bracelet

How to make a Fork Bracelet

Fork Bracelet

I've always loved taking everyday items and making them into something interesting. Ever since I was a little crafty kid I loved devouring books that taught me how to make little dolls from clothespins, beads from rolled up magazines, and little fairy ornaments from wire and fake flower petals. The first time I saw my friend wearing a bracelet made from a fork a few years ago, I knew I had to try it (*ahem Carly ;)). I wrote up a tutorial a while back, but I've had some questions about the directions I gave so I decided to make a proper tutorial with a video! :)


(Please excuse my intro, if you can't hustle your website on your Youtube channel, where else are you supposed to do it? ;))





What you need:
A fork. You can find the fork I used here.I think these forks are the easiest to use, and I've used a lot of different forks. :)
  Pliers, 3 pairs. 1 jewelry pair, 1 regular pair or needle nose, and an adjustable wrench.
  Piece of thick fabric like denim or corduroy.
 Strong hands. If you don't have these you might need to buy a hand exerciser. Just kidding. Ask for help! ;)
  If you still can't figure out how to make the bracelet, I sell fork bracelets in my Etsy store for a good price. If you want a bulk order, I can totally do that!

Fork Bracelet

I've always really liked layering bracelets. And my watch is hands down (or should I say wrists down?) the greatest watch ever invented. Digital, with a chronograph, a light, silver and gold? *Le sigh. ;)

Forks and wolves go together, right?

feathers
They definitely go with feathers.

Hahaha! Thank you! That's a pretty lofty compliment! :D

Lori H. said...

Okay, apparently I need some hand exercisers 'cause I've already ruined 3 forks....lol! I made one that is okay, but I think I'll try a vise if I make any more.

mommaj said...

Thought this would be easy; I broke the forks and cannot bend them. Lol I will try some different forks. I am having fun with them but wish I could get one to turn out.

Stacie Grissom said...

Yeah it is a bit tricky at first-- I am serious about the cheap fork though. I bought some for 1$ each and they were too nice. :/

Lauren said...

I love this idea! But I cannot seem to find cheap enough forks? Did you ever find some that you could buy?

Stacie Grissom said...

Thanks so much guys!!! To Lauren-- I did find some forks that work perfectly, I bought them in bulk from here:

Agy said...

BWillets20 said...

ZephyrTastic said...

lisbonlioness said...

NO WAY! This is so ace... even I get it, thanks to your video. Thank you so, so much, you totally made my day. No, where's that wretched wrench? If only my house wasn't a mess... I mean, creative chaos :D

Nettan said...

this is genius!

Kat E. said...

I love this! How do you get the rusty color?

Stacie Grissom said...

@Kat E. I think it is just the photo and the fork-- I didn't do anything special to it. :)

Trinka said...

Oh, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for posting this!!! :)I've been wanting to make one, but I though it involved welding and techniques of the like :P
So...Thank you!!! <3

how would a real silver fork work?

Stacie Grissom said...

I've bent sterling silver forks and they are a lot easier to bend. :)

Cat :) said...

I'm trying this, but the tips keep breaking off.

Stacie Grissom said...

@Cat You have to bend them in one motion, you can't keep bending them back and forth. :) I made that mistake as well. :)

have you ever seated any crystals or gems in the prong that you bend backwards? If so, what do you think the best method would be to do this?
I want to make one for a close friend of mine with an opal crystal on it

Hi Stacie, Greetings from New Zealand :) Loved your vid re fork bracelet. I'm wanting to make kitchen drawer handle (pulls) from genuine silver cutlery ie ones where the cutlery is both manipulated AND parts flattened eg spoon head, fork prongs etc.(apart from the handle part of course). Could you give me any clues how to actually DO this (or where I could find out pls?). Warm kiwi greetings, Ali

StacieGrissom said...

Hello Ali!! Thanks so much for your message! I've never done what you were talking about, but I'd just look around YouTube if I were you! :) I did find this tutorial-- is this what you are talking about? :)
