1  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / broken plates on: October 18, 2012 03:12:52 AM
I have a bunch of china plates and saucers with chips and some of them are smashed. I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out what to do with them?

My first thought was break them into little pieces and make some mosaics, but I seriously have LOADS of plates and I don't think I need mosaics that are THAT big! I was wondering if maybe I could cut them into shapes to make stuff out of, like necklaces, wind chimes etc? Or, possible make them into beads somehow? No idea! Any suggestions of what to do with them (and best of all, how to do it) very much appreciated.

Hi, I'm a newbie, but I have searched I promise!
I have a load of old plates and saucers that are chipped or broken that I wanted to cut up to make into shapes for necklaces, mobiles, wind chimes etc. I have heard the best tool to do this with is a dremel, but apart from that I'm completely in the dark! I have looked on DIY shop websites at them and found a baffling array of 'multitools' and attachments. If anyone could suggest to me which type of tool/attachments I need for this project that would be seriously wonderful.

I also have no idea of what technique to use once I do find out what kit I need! It occurs to me as well that he finished projects would need to be sanded or rounded off at the edges or something or they could be pretty dangerously sharp!
Any advise would be very very welcome!

Thank you massively in advance! xx
