Peek Inside My Studio: Broken China Statement Necklace

Take a peek inside my studio...

I love Flow Blue china, and I love Art Nouveau, so I was thrilled when I came across 
a few of these age-damaged plates a few years ago. I knew they would be perfect to 
turn into some beautiful jewelry.

Because the floral motif pattern on this china dinner plate is large, I knew it would be 
best suited to be made into a larger piece of jewelry - so I made this large statement 
necklace. The shorter chain allows the necklace to sit right at the base of the throat, 
and it is an eye-catching piece for sure!

I had the three huge tear-shaped pearls set aside for a while, just waiting
 for the perfect design to come along. After I made the china part of this necklace I
 knew right away that this was going to be their home. I love the way it turned out!

What do you think? 

I hope you have a great week 
Love, Laura
