Broken China Bracelet

These bracelets are made from broken teacups and saucers.

I find that it is easier to use saucers because the flat surface works much better for cutting my pieces. Also it is easier to find mismatched saucers. I hate to destroy a perfectly good teacup and saucer set, but if the teacup is missing and you just have a saucer left, then why not make it into a new jewelry design. This might have been a saucer that your Grandmother had left from her set!

I also use a strong magnetic clasp which is very popular with my customers. I do a lot of custom orders for this type of bracelet. Customers bring me their own china and I make a bracelet for them from their china. Great way to pass on these old teacups and saucers that no one seems to want!



Wonderful idea

What a great way to recycle. There are many cups and saucers with fantastic colors and designs and you have found one of them.

Thank you everyone for your lovely comments. I am having so much fun working with the broken china! It is a lot of work but so fulfilling to do, especially the custom orders.

Love this Idea

I could fall in love fast with this idea! I immediately thought about my Mom’s broken English Blue Willow China and how wonderful it would be to remember her by making bracelets from it. Thanks much.

These are so gorgeous!! Do you have a website so I can look at more of your beautiful bracelets? Where do you order your base bracelet from?

Just saw similar ( maybe they are yours!) jewelry pieces in a local shop in Burnstown. Do you do custom orders? I have hand-me- down cups and saucers I will never use… What a great way to honor my mother and grandmother and get use out of what they have given me.
