About Marjorie's Cracked Plate Jewelry
Marjorie's Cracked Plate Jewelry is designed from broken pieces of china, porcelain or ceramic. Each plate, teacup or mug is broken into pieces using mosaic nippers. Then the piece is hand filed to a smooth, attractive shape. Two coats of varnish are applied. The jewelry piece is then wrapped by hand with wire. Artist wire is used which will not tarnish.
The necklaces and chokers are hand crocheted with thin wire. Even the clasps are handmade.
Broken china jewelry is a totally "green" experience! Cracked and chipped china no longer needs to be thrown away - it can now be transformed into stunning pieces of jewelry that will be treasured for years to come.
What makes Marjorie's broken china jewelry designs even more unique is the fact that, unlike most artists who use foil to wrap their pieces, Marjorie hand wraps hers with wire and sometimes also uses beads to embellish the piece. So all three types of art forms - broken china, wire wrapping and beading - are used to create designs that are sure to attract attention.
