Broken china earrings with handmade sterling silver ear wires in a sterling silver bezel setting with china that is upcycled into jewelry by me.
I love creating things out of items that no one thinks are beautiful and usefukl anymore. No one really wants something that's not perfect or useable, except me. I found the china for these earrings at an antiques dealer here in Olympia. It was a Noritake side plate that had a chip on one edge and it was perfect for me to make into my upcycled jewelry.
This pair of earrings features tiny blue flowers and pastel green leaves. There is only one of these pairs of earrings due to the way the china was broken and rounded out in the grinding process.
I upcycle the damaged china into new and beautiful pieces of jewelry which will be loved and appreciated by whomever receives it. Each piece of china is carefully shaped and grinded and then custom set into sterling silver bezel settings in a multi stage process with various tools that I have in my studio. Their hanging length 1 3/4 inches or 4 cm.
This pair of earrings will be tastefully gift wrapped in a box and tied with a ribbon.
This pendant matches these earrings. It is also pictured in one of the photos of this listing
If you have china that you would love made into similar earrings, I always accept custom work. In fact, I love working with people's own china because it usually has special memories and sentiments associated with it. I've even done entire sets for all the ladies in a family who treasure and love wearing Grandma's china. Just email me if you are interested in this. The pricing is the same as this listing.
