Plate Jewelry

It's a thing, and it's beautiful

Have you ever thought of transforming antique ceramic dinnerware into something entirely new, wearable and artful? Artist Gesine Hackenberg did and the results are incredible! From necklaces to earrings and more, the Amsterdam-based artist creates all kinds of pieces from old plates.

If you click to look through her works, you'll see not only her finshed products but the origins of each work in plate form and the holes from which each piece has been carved. The circular objects that she crafts from each plate are known as "pearls" but they are so much more unique than any pearls I've ever seen. What do you think of them?

Have you seen any other incredible crafts made from everyday objects this week? Share them in the chat!
