Broken China Blossom Time Pendant
I have cut and hand shaped this dainty little pendant from the centre of an orphan Royal Albert “Blossom Time’ saucer. It has been carefully placed it in a gold setting and suspended from a fine gold satellite chain.
Your broken china pendant may have a slightly different Blossom Time pattern as no two pendants are exactly alike. I take great care to ensure that I have chosen an appealing pattern when creating all my broken china jewelry pieces.
This gold pendant is available in 2 sizes: 5/8 and 3/4 inches and can be purchased with matching earrings.
Please expect small surface and edge imperfections due to the age of the china and the manufacturing process. It is very difficult to extract a pretty piece from Blossom Time as the dishes are mostly a riotous mass of pink apple blossoms. Please see the final photo to view a large limited edition of a broken china necklace cut made from the same beautiful apple blossom pattern.
‘Blossom Time’ has a special significance for me as these were the dishes that my mother collected. The pattern went into production when she was a tiny child and I expect that she was familiar with these dishes from a very young age.
My mother loved anything pink. She was a true maritimer and the Annapolis Valley was dear to her heart. When she became too elderly to live independently, her large collection of Blossom Time was boxed up and given to several of her dear granddaughters.
It gives me great pleasure to create jewelry from discarded and orphaned Blossom Time, Royal Albert china.
