How do I bend a silverplate and/or a sterling silver fork?

I am trying to bend silverplate and sterling silver forks. I want to bend them in half on the handle. I have tried without heat (broke 2); with heat (broke 1). There has to be an easier, simpler way to bend these forks. Can anyone help me out with this? I have a vise, plenty of tools, a Dremel, and other "stuff" and now if I can only learn to bend these in half, I will be a happy man. Thanks for your input!!!!! LeroyA
