Re-claimed Pottery Jewelry

Currently, I am creating a large necklace that will eventually resemble the green necklace shown. This is made from a few of the floral plates shown. They are cut & ground into symmetrical pieces. Each piece is set in a unique 14kt. gold filled setting including real freshwater pearl accents and will be linked together to form a large statement necklace. It's heartbreaking to cut undamaged gorgeous china, but theses lovely plates were unwanted by the heirs. Thus the "Ivory Rose Memorial" title given when completed. Stay tuned...

The pieces show below are the heat shattered pottery remains recovered from the Flight 3407 plane crash in Clarence, NY. The tea pot once looked like the one shown and was a gift to the daughter. The pieces were made into a pendant & bracelet that were donated to this surviving daughter in memory of her father who perished in his home when the plane crashed.

Special Anniversary limited edition Roycroft Pottery made into pendants. Patty Cancilla, Roycroft Master Artisan in jewelry, received the licensing right from the Wendt Foundation on 8/9/2018 to use the broken pottery from the Roycroft Inn & Restaurant in East Aurora, NY.
