Reply I love this! i really really love this, what a fantastic idea to keep something in the family and give it a new life! Reply Juliet does wonderful work! So thrilled to see her here on Offbeat Bride! Reply These are awesome. Also, is the link supposed to say "piece" instead of "pice"? I could it being some sort of OBB trendy thing that I'm just not in on yet, haha. (Sorry, couldn't find the edit button.) Reply Yup, I totally mean "piece" thanks for the head's up. Reply Such a delightful use of china. Reply For Offbeat Homies: Juliet also makes great home accessories! I used my folks' groovy 60s plates for the first few years of my adult life, but after I got married last year, my new husband and I wanted to declutter and part with my parents' set. So I had the Broken Plate Co. make me a necklace, my sister a pair of earrings, and my parents a trivet and wine bottle opener. Everyone–especially my parents–loved the gifts, and we were able to part with the rest of the plates without losing the good memories. I highly recommend! Reply So there is a Jewish betrothal ceremony called Tena'im. At the end of this ceremony the mothers traditionally break plates. I have read that there is a tradition of the bride using pieces of these plates to make jewelry for her bridesmaids. Until now, I've never really understood how one might make jewelry out of shards of broken china. Now I know! I might even go find my old tena'im plates and have something made. Reply Yes! I know for a FACT that Juliet can, will, and HAS made jewelry from Tena'im plates. Awesome idea. Reply I love this so cute just wondering if anyone knows how long it takes to get the finished pieces ?? But so cool need something unigue for my oct wedding ?? Reply Hi Rebecca! October would be no problem. Email me your color scheme and I will help you track down a perfect plate (if you don't have one already) My email is juliet (at) ibreakplates.com Reply I've been a fan (and friend) of Juliet and her work since the start. It's about time OBB gave her some wedding cred! I'm so excited that now I'm planning my wedding and can have her make something amazing for my special day!
