St. Patrick's Day Jewelry is now available!

Remember the Irish shamrock teapot that I blogged about recently? Well, it's now quite a few pieces of Irish jewelry! The was one of the hardest pieces of china that I've yet worked on. By hard, I don't mean difficult - just hard china! Whoever cracked that teapot in the first place must have dropped it from a plane! It took all the strength I had to break it into pieces. But what lovely pieces they were - so smooth and shiny.

I've made some matching sets but each piece is available separately on my website. First there's a set wrapped with gold artist wire with green beading added. The pendant is 1" x 1-3/4" and the earrings measure 1/4" by 2" including the hoops.

Then I have a copper wire wrapped set. The copper looks particularly nice with the green shamrocks. This pendant is 1" x 2-1/4" and the earrings are 1/2" x 1-1/2" counting the hoops.

This is the silver wire wrapped set. The pendant measures 1" x 2-1/4" and the earrings are 1-1/4" x 2-1/4".

I also made a separate silver wrapped pendant measuring 1" x 2-1/2". Each of the pendants comes with an 18" black velvet cord with a 2" extension chain.

So celebrate this St. Patrick's Day with a truly "green" piece of jewelry - not only green in the Irish sense but also green in the recycled sense. And then enjoy these pieces every day for the rest of the year, too. Each of these jewelry pieces are available now at Marjorie's Cracked Plate Jewelry Store.
