Broken china

A few weeks ago, my BFF asked me if I could make jewelry out of a broken china plate.  I told her I've never tried it, but I'd love to give it a shot.  Over the weekend, she sent me this plate:

I assumed when she said the plate was broken, she meant that it was really broken, instead of a little piece chipped out.  So, I had to take drastic measures and drag out the hammer...

I have to say, smashing a plate is a pretty good stress reliever!  Turns out, the plate is her aunt's wedding china.  I'm just glad I found that out after I had smashed it!

As a side note, I got some odd looks from my husband and youngest daughter when they saw me sitting in the floor, smashing a plate with a hammer.  Travis said he thought she had sent the plate to me to fix . I found this amusing, because I'm pretty sure Misty is capable of gluing a plate.  

Anyway, I think I wound up with some pretty good pieces, and hope to have some jewelry pieces finished sooner than later.  Key word--hope.  I'm teaching a class tomorrow and Wednesday, and Hannah has softball games every night this week.  This is one week I'll be glad to see end!
