The Story of ForkNwears Artistic Silverware Jewelry
How does someone become a creator of silverware jewelry?
I'm sure every silverware jeweler has their own story. Mine actually starts behind a camera.
I had begun selling my photography in 2013. As a member of the local art guide in Florida, I had my fine art photographs in numerous art shows and galleries. I also had begun transforming my pictures into greeting cards.
I found a creative way to display these greeting cards- FORK EASELS!
When our family moved to Missouri a few years ago, I began looking for new local shops to sell my prints and cards in. One shop owner was intrigued by the fork easels and asked if I could create a "spoon bracelet" for her.
Always up for a challenge, and hoping that if I did this I could become a spotlight vendor in her darling shop, I began looking into silverware jewelry!
After much trial and error, I was able to create that 1st bracelet. I have to admit, I knew immediately that this was an art that I loved. Soon I was hunting down all the silverware I could find, and eventually the eldest's bedroom became my studio full time.
