One of my favourite things....

One of my favourite parts (and there are many!) of Forgotten China is taking commissions from customers who are looking for me to create new pieces of jewellery from their own china.

The latest commission was from a lady who received a china set as a wedding gift over 40 years ago and had recently broken one of the teacups. Instead of throwing it out, she contacted me and asked if I could create some jewellery pieces as gifts for her daughters, son and niece.

These pictures show some of the original broken pieces and two of the finished pendants. I also made cufflinks and earrings for her but of course, I forgot to take pictures of those pieces :-( :-:-( What do you think?

I love the fact that each piece is unique and special but more than that, I love that there's a story behind the pieces; that the broken china wasn't thrown away but instead, it was used to create beautiful gifts of handmade heirloom jewellery to be worn and passed down through the generations

If you're looking to do something similar with your own china/pottery for yourself or for gifts, just get in touch at forgottenchina@gmail.com, 086 8440795 or leave a comment below :-) :-)
