How to Make Broken China Jewelry the Easy Way

All the previous broken china jewelry featured designers I`ve written about (see below) solder the metal edging. If you are not ready to learn soldering yet, there is another way to incorporate a broken china pendant in your jewelry design.

Shawn Wilson of Shaviq Deisgns came up with this wonderful video tutorial which does not involve soldering. She uses a scrap of leather to back and edge the broken china piece. She also demonstrates how to incorporate a simple wire bail into the back so the broken china piece can be hung as a pendant. Clever!

Thank you Pearl, it is always nice to see different methods of doing things because what works for one person might not work for another. I do not do soldering so the old and standard method would not suit my level of expertise...or in-expertise as my case would be.

What glue does she use in the tutorial?

Pearl Blay said...

Don't know. But the most commonly used glue is E6000. Or you could try a 2 part epoxy glue.
