Wear a Piece of the Past with DinnerWear Jewelry


After having worked in fashion for a decade, it is very, very difficult to surprise me. Even though I know that fashion is an ever-evolving phenomenon, with new ideas, concepts and designs appearing on the market with a certain regularity, sometimes I still feel like I've seen it all. I live for discovering new things on the fashion scene - it is refreshing, every once in a while, to see something new and unexpected that makes me say "Wow, I've never seen that before!"

My newest discovery is DinnerWear Jewelry, an artisan brand founded by Mary-Ann Wood that specializes in jewelry made of broken china. She sources the pieces from all over the world - England, Italy, Germany, France, Japan and Poland , just to name a few - and can even create custom jewelry for you using your family china. She is truly taking both recycling and jewelry making to the next level.


This is a wonderful way to give new life to beautiful things that have (seemingly) reached the end of their life cycle. The ultra feminine and delightfully vintage aesthetic of these pieces make them the perfect keepsakes to be cherished and passed down to future generations. They are also a beautiful complement to bridal looks, lending them an air of fragility and old world charm. 

Breaking a piece from your family China service can feel devastating, because often a plate, a cup or a saucer can be much more than a piece of dinnerware: it is a holder of memories of family dinners and celebrations, birthdays, Christmases, reunions or your grandmother's afternoon tea ceremony. Using the fragments to make a jewelry set is a beautiful way of conserving those memories. 




Place a custom order or DinnerWear Jewelry and work directly with Mary-Ann to design a custom piece using your broken family china! The results will far exceed your expectations.
