Embellished Floral "Sweetheart" Necklace

This is a one of a kind hand-crafted, "broken china" necklace. I created this piece by artistically repurposing a vintage Rutledge, or previously known as Old Southern Garden, Lenox China plate. The flowers are painted in raised relief glaze, giving the china nice depth. The colors on this china are very vibrant and especially perfect for fall. I call this design my "Sweetheart Necklace" as it has been my most popular custom ordered style for brides and their wedding parties. It will make a perfect addition to your romantic wardrobe, or as a thoughtful gift for anyone's special occasion.

The heart pendant measures 1 & 1/8" across by 1" in height and hangs neatly from a 18" sterling silver plated cable chain with matching silver plated floral embellishment. The necklace itself has a total length of 19", a perfect length to wear with any blouse, sweater or camisole but can be lengthened or shortened to the buyer's specifications by dropping me a note in "Convos". Please refer to the third picture. The china heart medallion is surrounded by a silver alloy bezel embellished with intricate silver soldered beadwork. The entire work has been treated with a sealer that will retard tarnishing. The necklace comes in a white gift box ready for wrapping or safe keeping.

If you live in the Northeast you may have seen my work at some of the premier arts and crafts festivals as I have been selling my work in that venue for 18 years. Please continue to read about my work or email me with any questions.

Wedding Day and Beyond

For generations of women, china has represented the heart of the home. The passing down of heirloom china or the selection of new is an age old and treasured bridal tradition.

Let me create an enduring and meaningful gift for you to give to all those wonderful women participating in your special day. Share with them little shards of yourself by giving them jewelry fashioned from your own personal pattern. Your bridesmaids and flower girls will cherish a “sweetheart” necklace. Your mother, his mother and grandmothers will be honored to wear a necklace or brooch that represents your new life together.
