Description

This is a striking brooch. It is recycled from a fragment of a recycled, china plate, cut in an unusual shape. I cut the rough shape with a glass cutter, then grind the edges smooth using a grindstone on a drill. Quite a tricky process.
Custom made.
Have you recently broken a favourite piece of old china and would like a piece of jewellery made from a fragment. It can be a nice way of rescuing some thing that you really liked or had sentimental value. I can make brooches, pendants or earrings; please contact me to ask.

Inspiration

I have quite a collection of old china plates, of different kinds and vintages, mostly bought from charity shops and flea markets, often chipped or cracked, which I use to make jewellery. And of course if I break a piece of my kitchen ware I can often reclaim the pieces. I enjoy selecting the individual motif and making it work as something in itself. It's very satisfying to find a use for things which have been broken or discarded.

Returns Policy

You have 14 days, from receipt, to notify the seller if you wish to cancel your order or exchange an item.

Unless faulty, the following types of items are non-refundable: items that are personalised, bespoke or made-to-order to your specific requirements; items which deteriorate quickly (e.g. food), personal items sold with a hygiene seal (cosmetics, underwear) in instances where the seal is broken.

Additional terms

Eco info. I am concerned about the environment and upcycle as many of my materials as possible. All the beads and feature materials that I use will be recycled, and some are vintage or antique. However, some of the findings and all of the stringing materials will be new, as I think it is important to prioritise making things that will withstand heavy wear for quite a long time. Postage and packing policy. I normally pack brooches in tissue and a jiffy bag so that they can go by letter post and minimise postage costs. However I can use a gift box, but would have to use parcel post which is more expensive. If you would like your brooch in a gift box, please ask. I use standard UK postage and standard airmail for orders under £30. However if you prefer confirmed mail for extra piece of mind I can do this; just ask me. By default I use airmail for overseas orders, but if you would prefer I can send your jewellery by surface mail which is better for the environment. It is also cheaper but reputedly takes a long time.
