How to Transform Your Old Crockery Into a Gorgeous Pendant Necklace
I love to design unique wearable pieces of art even better if they tell a story or can be a keepsake from the past. Collecting old vintage crockery that has beautiful designs and flowers on. Just call to me to be loved again to be transformed and worn proudly,
I choose some lovely pieces of floral ceramic that has designs on that I feel would make a good pendant necklace.
I use wheeled tile nippers to shape slightly to look more balanced.and remembering to wear eye goggles is paramount. .
They are easy to use and make nipping and nibbling china so effortless .
Next job is smoothing rough edges with a mini hand held tool with a carbide sanding wheel attachment. Always wearing eye goggles for any work with china .
Once happy with the shape and smoothed edges it’s time for sanding a little bit of the back ready for fixing the silver bail piece to hold the chain on. Bail is with a textured paddle shape that help it adhere to the ceramic. Easily available to buy online.
The two part epoxy resin is easy to prepare with a pea size of each
mixed together then spread on to the bail and the ceramic and hold in position until set hard and firm which will take. a few minutes.
I am so thrilled with the result and use a silver snake chain to make the necklace complete and the beautiful Art Deco tulip china is a unique vintage keepsake.
