Each fork pendant I create is different. Every one dictates the shape I can bend it into and its final finish before I even start. Most of the time they suggest aquatic shapes with their gently flowing tines. So now I've taken it to the next step with the Forktopus series.
Once, these forktopods were a prized possession in someone’s household, admired for their craftsmanship as much as a status symbol. Little did they know it was only the paralarval stage of the recently hatched forktopi! Through my tender care they have grown and are ready to begin new lives inhabiting your neckline.
Since these are pieces of old antique silver-plated silverware, each will bear the marks and scars of a previous useful existence. I take silverware that is more than a half century old, cut, shape, form and polish it so I can pull a beautiful thing out of a rough tarnished utensil. But I'm not perfect, and neither is my work. I wouldn't want it to be if I could. Expect the odd scratch, ding or dent. I call it character, I think it gives each piece a soul of its own. As I create these pieces, they are subject to variety of tools and processes. I don't add anything to them, I just alter them to showcase their hidden beauty. Consult the photos to see exactly what this piece looks like and check out my other forks for other cool different versions. I try to take my photos as acurately and honestly as possible so you can order from me with confidence.
Silver plate has a tendency to become a tarnished over time and forktopods are no exception. I personally like to watch as pieces slowly darken and subtly change color in response to their environment. I think of it as much the same way a cuddlefish camouflages itself. I make sure they look shiny and new when I send them to you. If you want them to stay that way then just wash them in warm soapy water like you would a regular fork!
You will receive the exact pendant pictured in this listing, as well as a leather or suede cord of whatever color and length I have available. If you want a different chain or cord, just let me know and I'll see what I have available. The pendant's size should be easy to estimate, they're made from actual forks afterall.
Free shipping worldwide. I'm at the post office almost every weekday, so I'll have your pendant on the way as quick as I can!
Make sure to check out the other forktopi I currently have available for some more exquisite designs. And if you don't see one you like, just ask me and I'll try and make another one.
I also have various recycled silverware components for you to use in your own projects. Spoon bowls, forks and handles all awaiting your finishing touch. Let me save you the time, tools and trouble.
