Shop Announcement:

Thanks for stopping by! My shop will be on holiday from the 3rd-19th July!

Inspired by my walks and adventures in the UK's countryside and along its seaside, and with a desire to reduce my footprint on the planet, I upcycle found pottery shards, sea glass and scoria glass, into keepsake jewellery to ground you in connection to its story.... to a person, a place, a memory. When you purchase Unearthed Jewellery, you also receive the story that has been uncovered....where your shard was unearthed, and more. I am registered with the Edinburgh Assay office and a Gold Member of the British Guild of Jewellery Designers. All Unearthed jewellery is signed with a .925 fineness mark and UBL makers mark.

Upcycled Blue & White Bone China Criss Cross Border Sterling Silver Earrings

Upcycled Blue & White Bone China Criss Cross Border Sterling Silver Earrings
Love this


Connecting you to the land and history of Spode, the Potteries and Stoke on Trent, the pottery shard these upcycled earrings are made from was once a miniature mandarin plate, damaged by a drunk driver that smashed through the Spode shop window. These repurposed blue and white bone china earrings come from the popular Spode 'Willow' pattern! Spode's Willow pattern is probably one of the most successful patterns ever made. The main features of the true Willow pattern are the bridge with three people crossing it, the willow tree, the boat, the main teahouse, the two birds and the fence in the foreground of the garden. These depict a tale of two lovers who eloped and were turned into doves. The shard comes from a Miniature Madarin Willow plate, made in 1889, and shows the criss-cross pattern from the border of the dish. They measure 8mm across.

These are the perfect gift for someone who wants to express their unique style and desire to take care of the environment. It would also make a great 2nd, 9thth Anniversary Gift given the gift themes for these milestones.

Sterling Silver earring posts ensure you won't have to worry about any metal allergies or green earlobes! In addition, the earrings come with comfortable, high quality plastic backings that stay put, and don't make a dent in the back of your ear. They ensure you can wear the backings anywhere along the earring post so the earring stays in place.


Inspired by Spode, the Potteries, and the UK's ceramic industry, these earrings carry the memories and stories of its past craftsmen and ground you in connection.... to a person, a place or a memory of Staffordshire, the potteries and the heritage of Spode.

When you purchase a piece of Unearthed Jewellery, you also receive the provenance that has been uncovered....where it was unearthed, what it was from, and more.
