Announcement   Heirloom quality Sterling Silver Stainless Fork Bracelets and Spoon Bracelets. Silver Anniversary gifts hand made one of a kind gifts made from the whole spoon and fork not just spoon handles of fork handle bent with holes drilled in them.
I use real solid silver not silver plated spoons or forks. Silver plating is 1/1000 of an inch thick covering copper and then a white alloy underneath those two layers. It makes very poor quality bracelets and rings, when the silver plate wears against your skin the copper underneath can turn you green. Not good, don't be fooled it is pretty but will not last if you wear it.

********* My Tubular Clasp that I designed and assemble personally ******* Is a machined stainless steel body encapsulating two rare earth magnets. Each magnet is 1/4" in diameter and 1/4" long. The magnetic force created face to face by the collective 1/2" of magnets is near three pounds. Side shear prevention is designed into the clasp via it's tubular design preventing the possibility of the magnets sliding apart sideways. The clasp is held into the bracelet with solid 16 gauge stainless hardened jump rings. The safety chain and lobster claw clasp are also stainless steel. This quality is unmatched and very important to the overall integrity of my quality bracelets.

Thanks for coming and seeing my new shop as of December 10, 2013.

One of a kind heirloom quality solid Sterling-Silver and Stainless steel bracelets signed and dated.

Pictures can't convey the quality feel or nice fit these rare bracelets have.

Unlike silver stainless steel does not tarnish. These will be an heirloom 75 years from now when your grandchild is wearing it.
You will not see anything like this elsewhere. The quality and finish is unmatched.
In Victoria, British Columbia, Canada I sell many bracelets each year to tourists from all over the world.

About

Sterling Silver Stainless Steel Fork & Spoon Bracelets with proprietary tubular clasp

I designed my own magnetic clasp and assemble them personally. It is the strongest tubular clasp of it's kind making my bracelets easy to put on. Is a machined stainless steel body encapsulating two rare earth magnets. Each magnet is 1/4" in diameter and 1/4" long. The magnetic force created face to face by the collective 1/2" of magnets is near three pounds. Side shear prevention is designed into the clasp via it's tubular design preventing the possibility of the magnets sliding apart sideways. The clasp is held into the bracelet with solid 16 gauge stainless hardened jump rings. The safety chain and lobster claw clasp are also stainless steel. This quality is unmatched and very important to the overall integrity of my quality bracelets.
I buy forks and spoons from all over the world. I hunt for extraordinary patterns so I can create one of a kind heirloom quality bracelets. Each bracelet is signed inside and marked Victoria, BC and the year it was crafted.
