New fall jewelry!

I had found a beautiful Bavarian china plate from Germany that I had planned on as my next project. I did break it into pieces and I did file quite a few of the pieces down and was all ready to start on it when I found a really beautiful china bowl with great fall leaves and colors. As soon as I saw that bowl, I knew it was just the perfect time to create some jewelry from it.

Plus I found these beautiful Czech goldstone beads from The Bead Station on Etsy that went perfectly with the colors in the china. The Bead Station is a great place to buy beads, by the way.

I also recently learned that big, bold, chunky jewelry is all the rage right now. My first two fall creations are right in tune with that! They both can be found on Marjorie's Cracked Plate Jewelry Website.

The first one is a large colorful fall leaf pendant, wrapped with copper artist wire with three of the goldstone beads. The pendant measures 2" x 2".

This one's a more mod-looking design with beautiful fall colors, also wrapped with copper artist wire with three goldstone beads. The measurement of this pendant is 1-3/4" x 2".

I also designed a smaller pendant to go with a crocheted wire necklace which I created using both gold and copper artist wire. Included are five of the Czech beads. The necklace measures 19-1/2" and the pendant measures 1-1/4" x 1". This unique necklace is available here.

Of course I had to include some earrings so here they are, measuring 1-1/2" long not counting hoops. You can find them here.

If you have any questions about my jewelry, please let me know.

Ohhhh, Awwww. I love the necklace with the yellow flower (I think it is a rose) on it. That must have been a lovely piece of china. What joy it must give you to turn what was once broken into something beautiful !
