I love to up cycle old vintage broken ceramics and then transform these beautiful interesting old pieces into amazing unique jewllery creations which are so pretty and one of a kind.
How to up Cycle Old Ceramic Tableware Into Beautiful Brooch.
I see some interesting pieces to cut and save and shape using wheeled tile nippers. I always wear protective eye Goggles to prevent shards injury.
I shape the pieces I want to use and turn them to look at the pieces from various angles and once cut is time to sand and shape smooth. I
use a mini hand held sander with carbide stone attachment. Slowly and gently I smooth edges until it’s looking and feeling nice.
It starts to take shape and now The brooch is ready to glue a pin on the back and I begin by sanding the back a little with sander to enable the fixing to adhere better
I use two part epoxy resin to create a nice mix of the hardener and glue especially for jewellery making . It sets quite quickly so not much time o get ready with the brooch pin to sit in position of glue on the back of ceramic.
After a about twenty mins it is ready to wear!
I’m so pleased with the result and it’s so unique!!

This looks like fun!! I have some pieces that are family heirlooms, but broken. What a lovely way to share the old pieces among family members ... lots of brooches from a plate, etc. Oh .. earrings or wall hangings. Someday I hope to have the time to do it.
