Last of the Nippon china pieces

I always feel sad when I come to the last few pieces of a certain pattern of china that I've worked with. This Nippon china was given to me at a craft show and I'm going to miss working with it. It was a broken antique vase and so beautifully hand painted. Here are my last efforts with it.

First is a wire crochet necklace with broken china pendant. It's hand crocheted with gold artist wire. The design of the necklace is a new one for me. The image on the pendant is of a pale pink rosebud with lovely gold outlines. The pendant is 1/2" x 2" and the necklace is 20" long. This necklace can be found on my website.

Next is a gold wire wrapped pendant showing a white flower with green background, again with striking gold outlines. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get a photo showing the lush colors of this piece. The pendant measures 1" x 2-1/4" and comes with a black velvet cord. That can also be found on my website.

Finally, there this pendant with gold wire wrap showing part of a white flower with lovely green leaves outlined in gold. The pendant measures 1" x 2-1/2" and also comes with a black velvet cord. Click here to go to my website for that piece.

That's it for my Nippon china pieces. Hopefully someday I'll come across another piece of broken Nippon to work with. I certainly hope so!

These are so pretty! I especially love the gold wire wrapped pendant with white flower and green background. The wire-work is so delicate looking.

Love your new pendant. I have a whole load of stones that are just waiting to be wrapped that are just so sparkly and have some amazing colours in them, I will be sorry to pass them on when they are done too.

Sad that you have no more of this china. I really love the white flowers. Beautiful!
