Broken China Jewelry
About Broken China Jewelry
Broken China Jewelry is created with pieces of china, artfully cut and set in silver solder, silver plate, sterling silver or gold plate. It can also be used without any setting at all. From tiny china charms to statement pieces, each one of a kind piece will add charm and elegance to your wardrobe.
Creating Broken China Jewelry
There are numerous ways to create pieces of jewelry from pieces of china. At the very least, the china must be sanded on the edges. Some purists add nothing to the china, and may create pendants by using a rotary tool with a silicon carbide grinding stone attachment to create a small hole for the jump ring.
Pieces may also be cut into more standard shapes such as hearts and ovals. This usually involves a tile cutter, a rotary ceramic or diamond rotary cutting tool, a small saw, or a tile nipper. Once the china piece is shaped and smoothed, it is usually wrapped in strips of copper foil and applied with lead free silver solder. More upscale versions are set in actual sterling settings. Finally, jump rings, ear wires, etc. are added to finish the creation.

History of Broken China Jewelry
The art of using bits and pieces of porcelain to create something beautiful is centuries old, but the interest in using familiar china patterns to create jewelry seems to have heightened in the early 2000's as numerous artists began to make names for themselves in online stores and delighted customers found themselves able to easily purchase items in this genre.
