The Broken Fragment Brooch consists of a piece of broken china tea cup, a patinated brass ring, patinated silver chain and patinated silver setting. It evolved from the desire to recycle beautiful materials with a meaning. In 2012, I’ve created a collection called Cherry romance, which was based on one bone china cup. I still remember, when the cup broke apart and I got this idea to make one collection made of this special cup. I’ve collected all the fragments and designed brooches and necklaces of it.
I loved this Chinese cup
I didn’t have it that long
I didn’t want it to drop, but as a cup it died
I got seduced by the beauty of the fragments
I wanted to avoid the evanescence
I wanted to provide rebirth for it
I enchanted it
It enchanted me
It is jewellery.
