Absolutely Gorgeous!

Pin It Now!

I received the nicest comment on my blog about a week ago from Joy~Cupids Charm .  She used my painting technique on her armoire.  I went over to visit her blog and saw that she has a beautiful online boutique where she sells this drop-dead gorgeous jewelry made from broken china.  It is so beautiful I just had to share it with all of you.
I've seen jewelry made from old china before but none as beautiful as hers!  Every one I look at just takes my breath away!  
I know what I'm going to be buying with some of my tax refund!  It will be my Mother's Day gift to myself...I must have one of these bracelets!  I bet I would get compliments every time I wore this!  Her necklaces are stunning too!  She also has some beautiful bracelets made out of vintage spoons.  
I think I would  buy a special outfit just to match the jewelry!  
How cute are these bunnies!

Okay, here is the armoire she painted.  I love the plates she hung on the doors!  You'll have to go to her blog and see the "before" photo.  I really need to get my armoire finished and this is the inspiration I needed!
I hope you enjoyed all this beauty as much as I did!

Click here to visit her shop and click here to visit her blog.  Make sure you tell her Cindy sent you!  And thank you Joy for letting me share this with everyone!

I agree, gorgeous jewelry! I also love the idea of taking broken pieces of china and repurposing them. The end result is really striking.

WOW! That armoire is beautiful!! I would never have thought to hang plates on an armoire, but now that I see it, I like it!! I wish I had room for a huge armoire in my house.

As soon as I write this, I will go visit her. Yes, they are truly beautiful. Now that's what I call making lemonade from lemons. Making jewelry from something already broken! Lovely armoire. Now I'm going to go visit.

I loved what Joy shared - and as she wears her tiara while washing dishes makes me think she's one neat woman!!

Hope you get your Mother's Day jewelery Cindy - you deserve something this pretty on your wrist.

Hi Cindy~
I visited her blog and like you said, GORGEOUS!!! Every last thing is amazing.
She did a wonderful job on her armoire, too....I love that aging glaze, it's just enough.
Also, your picture is pretty...don't know why I haven't noticed that one before!
Oh well, dear blogging friend, have a blessed and happy day.

How stunning - I've never seen bracelets like that, wow. and I love that cupboard.The plates on the door are a nice idea, my grandmother used to always have plates hanging and I think its now back in fashion.
