Longhorn Fork Pendant by Doctor-Gus
Longhorn Fork Pendant
You're looking at an awesome pendant necklace that is made from an antique sterling silver plated fork.

Yes, that's right! It's a longhorn steer made from a fork! No bull, it's pretty cool. Pick one up today, because they can't wait to stampede around your neckline.

Silver Devil Fork Pendant by Doctor-Gus
Silver Devil Fork Pendant
This is a delightful little fork pendant handmade from a genuine antique upcycled sterling silver plated fork. 

It is part of my "Forktopus" series of cephalopodic silverware jewelry. This guy has two little horns, so I've called him the "Silver Devil". Its devious tines are sure to be right at home poking around your neckline.

Spoon Triangle Necklace by Doctor-Gus
Spoon Triangle Necklace
This necklace has been crafted out of six antique sterling silver-plated spoons. They are linked together to form a silvery triangular focal point to this statement necklace. 

Now, I wonder what I could do with 50 linked spoons... a suit of spoon armor perhaps?

The Flying Rose by Doctor-Gus
The Flying Rose
This necklace has been crafted out of several antique sterling silver-plated forks. I call it The Flying Rose.

Two expertly shaped antique forks suggest the outline of wings. From this is suspended a antique fork featuring a beautiful rose design, all of which hangs from a sturdy chain. 

The result is a delightful flowery recycled piece of eco-chic wearable art. A true fashion statement, This stunning neck wear is one of my favorites, hopefully it will make a great addition to your jewelry collection or costume.

Once these forks were a prized possession in someone’s household, admired for their craftsmanship and 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!

Magnolia Pattern Spoon Statement Necklace by Doctor-Gus
Magnolia Pattern Spoon Statement Necklace
Here is a delightful tribal steampunk style necklace crafted out of a vintage sterling silver plated spoons.

This is the "Magnolia" pattern made in 1951. I've cut, drilled and polished the pieces to create a wonderful wearable upcycled piece of earth friendly art.

The fork tines remind me of teeth and the central spoon suggestes a sort of skull shape. It gives a somewhat tribal feeling to the necklace.  

Each recycled statement necklace I create is different. Even if I bend the forks and spoons into similar shapes, every piece reacts in a unique and often unpredictable way, especially when I add stones to them. No two I do are ever quite the same. You can truly say you are wearing a one-of-a-kind work of art.
