"Green Stripe #2" Beautifully Broken Bird Pendant - Upcycled China in Sterling Silver
This lovely green & white striped birdie is made from a section of broken china plate by stone cutter Sierra Stone Studios. She upcycles broken pottery and china by creating cabochons from the broken pieces. Jewelers like myself buy them to create unique, fun jewelry that promotes reusing materials that would otherwise end up in a landfill.
This setting for this piece is completely hand-fabricated by me in sterling silver. A single handstamped sterling silver leaf adorns the top of the bird. 17.5" bright sterling silver cable chain with lobster clasp closure. The entire piece is oxidized with liver of sulphur and buffed and polished to bring out the highlights of the metal.
