Ceramic jewellery and accessories

Sunday, November 13, 2011

Beautiful patterns can be found on crockery, but whilst wearing a dinner plate around your neck might sound a bit silly, there are ways to wear floral ceramic pieces with style.

Images found on CoolPictureGallery, show how broken crockery can be re-purposed into gorgeous jewellery pieces.

Another alternative to ceramic jewellery? Using miniature dollshouse china. Aren't these little treats the cutest?

Each To Own sell "Nanna Platter" (love that name!) necklaces for $35

Thought I'd have a go myself. I browsed the 'used' section of dollshouse miniatures on eBay, and found two cute little plates.

An Irish scene and a plate with rabbits

When they arrived in the post, I did find they were too large to make into necklace pendants, so instead, using a glue gun and brooch backs, I've made both of them into brooches.

These are lovely and so creative. The "broken china" earrings are especially beautiful.

@keshling I've been trying to find out who made these lovely pieces, but so far, have had no luck, there appears to be no reference to the artist on any website!

I love them all - especially the gorgeous earrings and your brooches. I am totally inspired!

Those pieces are amazing, I'd love to know who made them too, they're beautiful. And I've seen little teacup etc necklaces before, but nothing like your plate brooches - great idea! x

so pretty very ingenious ideas! The next time I break a precious cup or plate I'm going to think twice about throwing the pieces away!
