This necklace is crafted out of two antique sterling silver-plated forks. It is articulated to wrap around your neckline in stunning fashion. This is a true statement piece, you gotta be pretty cool to be able to wear this one. I've dubbed it's bigger brother the "Flying Squid" and that makes this the Mini Flying Squid. This design is by far one of my personal favorites, and I hope it is yours as well.

Once these forks were a prized possession in someone’s household, admired for their craftsmanship as much as a status symbol. Now that their time of usefulness has come to an end, eclipsed in favor of newer stainless utensils, I have seen fit to retire them for use as beautiful jewelry to be showcased as a work of art in its own right.

You will receive the exact necklace pictured, it is adjustable up to approximately 24 inches in length. Please check out the other designs I currently have available for some different versions.

This is made from antique silver-plated forks. The composition of silver plated silverware is such that when I heat and bend them, the outer sterling plating expands. This expansion causes subtle ripples, ridges, bumps, bubbles, and various other interesting textures to develop in the surface of the fork. Personally, I think this texture looks cool, but I can understand that some people would prefer a piece with a perfectly smooth finish. That is not what you are getting here. Most of my forks tend to have some surface texturing. Consult the photo to see exactly what you are getting. I try to take my photos as acurately and honestly as possible of the exact piece for sale, so you can order from me with confidence.

Since these are pieces of old antique silver-plated forks, they will become tarnished over time. You should've seen them before I started polishing them! I enjoy watching as each piece develops it's own patina in response to it's environment. If you want it to stay nice and shiny, then you just have to hit it up with a polishing cloth occasionally. Clean it like you would any normal silverware really.

Shipping will be by USPS Priority, so it will be in the mail and on it's way to you very quickly.

Thanks for looking and make sure to take a look at the rest of my ever expanding line of recycled silverware jewelry, from pendants, to rings, to necklaces, to bracelets, to things I'm not quite finished with yet...
