Found this little broken piece of china from a leftover project, and wanted to use it in a pendant. The swallows are so graceful and delicate looking.

Filled in around the china with shades of blue glass frit, and sealed the whole piece.

That is such a great idea and so beautifully executed.  The blue is great.

I could see doing this as a keepsake if you have a cup or plate that belonged to someone special and you want to keep it close to your heart, but don't necessarily want to keep the whole dish...anyone up for smashing Grandma's china?
