Now that you have your beads, flatware, and wire picked out, you will need to know just how to wrap the beads around the flatware. Knowing how to do this is the key to creating beautifully beaded flatware pieces on your own. In order to do this, you will need detailed instructions complete with pictures showing you step by step how to bead flatware yourself.
Another interesting fact about silver flatware is that it has very unique and ornate designs. Interestingly it cannot be reproduced in stainless steel. There is a question posed by several people as to whether the silver flatwares could be washed. The answer is, yes it can be washed, but preferably by hand. It is not a problem to wash silver flatwares using dishwasher but continuous use results in the loss of its glow and shine. Another advise is not to wash the sterling flatware and stainless steel together.
Flatware can be broadly divided into two, one for day to day normal use and the other for specific occasions like birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions. Normal cutlery are made of stainless steel while the expensive types are manufactured from Sterling Silver, Nickel Plate or even Gold Plating. As for plates, normally they are available in ceramic materials such as bone china or porcelain. Its feasible to compare flatware to clothing, people may wear regular clothes while going about their everyday life while for special occasions, they tend to wear outfits of a greater quality.
One similar brand of flatware to compare is Gorham. This is a flatware provider whose legacy goes all the way back to 1831. Though it is similarly priced to Othenia, Gorham has much more of an elegant and traditional design. With Othenia being an Oneida brand, they also offer an open stock policy which Gorham does not. This means that if you were to lose a piece of your silverware from Gorham you would have to buy a complete set to replace your lost piece. With open stock you are able to buy a single piece to replace the one that has been lost without spending a fortune on an entire new set.
