How to: Broken Porcelain Necklace

This one's a bit of a no-brainer, but thought I'd share it with you anyway. Who doesn't love an easy peasy lemon squeezy craft project?


This one came about through finding small pieces of broken china in our garden when digging it (there's crockery in our rockery!) and wanting to do something with them. I'm a sucker for anything with a blue and white oriental pattern, so fell in love with these small pieces of porcelain. If you are normal and don't have broken china buried in your garden, you could always buy a cheap plate from a charity shop and then smash it up (great for anger release too).

You will need:
  • Broken porcelain (file the edges if sharp)
  • Large jump ring
  • Smaller jump ring
  • Pliers
  • Necklace
  • Glue

Glue the large jump ring to the back of your porcelain. Some porcelain is quite smooth, so if you're having trouble making the jump ring stick just key a small area of the porcelain by using sandpaper.

Using the smaller jump ring, connect both the necklace and the porcelain together.

And you're done! Wear with a smile as you show off your unique, but easily made necklace.

Have you ever found anything interesting buried in your garden? What did you do with it?
