Often times, beloved plates with great sentimental value are broken. Don't despair! Just contact me and I'll be glad to work up a jewelry item from the broken pieces that will have special meaning for you. Create a special memories piece of jewelry that will be treasured for a lifetime. China is sometimes a part of a family for generations and so many memories can be attached to it. Turning a broken plate into a wire wrapped creation is my way of prolonging the life of those memories.
Custom designed jewelry makes wonderful heirloom jewelry that will be treasured by families for many generations to come. Perfect for gift giving for graduations, birthdays, holidays, proms, anniversaries and weddings. Have china that your mother treasured for so many years? Have a Beatrice Potter dish that your daughter used as a child - what a perfect gift for her graduation! Even perfect as a pet memorial when using the dish that a beloved pet used during its lifetime.
If you see one of my necklaces with black wire and you would prefer another color, let me know. If you like the wire wrapping on one of my pendants with a particular color china, I'll certainly see what I can come up with. The ideas for this type of jewelry are limitless, so get your creative juices flowing and come up with some ideas for me to work with. Or I'll be glad to help those ideas flow right along. You can have a good idea at any time. In fact, it sometimes helps if you are not directly thinking about the subject at all. So, keep 'cracked' jewelry in the back of your mind the next time you Go to Cheeky Bingo or run over to the mall and a great idea will probably pop into your head. You never know when inspiration will hit.
Of course, most of the china used on the pieces seen on this website were long ago made into jewelry and cannot be replicated. But occasionally I will have some pieces left over so if you see something you like, please check with me.
If you're in the Wall Township, New Jersey area, contact me through the Contact page and we'll set up a time when you can stop by and take a look at my jewelry personally. Or you can bring your china with you so we can talk about designing some jewelry for you. Of course, if you're not in my area, you can still place a custom order through the contact page.
"The pendants were absolutely perfect! As you can imagine, this Christmas was difficult without my grandmother. On Christmas Eve, my mom and aunt brought some of my grandmother's old photos to share with their cousins before dessert. After everyone was done looking at and talking about the pictures, my mom told them that she had a special gift that she wanted to give to them early. Everyone was really amazed by the pendants and by how they were made! And the cousin who my mom thought was least likely to wear the pendant was the most moved by it! She and everyone else put them on immediately! I cannot thank you enough!"
