First design from the Nippon china pitcher

Remember the Nippon china pitcher that I wrote about a couple of weeks ago? That was the broken china given to me by another vendor at the Manasquan Craft Show. Here's the photo again of the broken pieces.

And here's the first jewelry piece I designed from those broken shards.

The actual pendant itself is 1" x 1-1/4" and is wrapped with gold artist wire. The chain is hand crocheted with gold artist wire and measures 17" long.As I mentioned before, Nippon china was manufactured between 1865 and 1921. The china pitcher that broke was a valuable antique and I'm so pleased that I've been able to recycle those pieces into something that can be worn for many years to come. This piece will be available at the Ocean Grove Craft Show this Saturday, August 30, 2008. If someone doesn't grab this piece there, I'll be posting it to my website. In the meantime, it can be purchased right here for $45 by clicking the link below. Hurry because I think this one may go quickly!

This might now be one of my favourite Cracked Plate pieces. Well done!
