The little bowls I have used to craft these earrings are too small for tea and too large for egg cups, so I guess they are for nibbles - nuts and things. There is no named manufacturer's backstamp, no easily identifying maker's mark - nothing that tells me anything about these vessels except that they were designed in Australia and made in China. 

There is nothing whatsoever vintage about them. I would guess that they are a mass-produced item from the early 2020's. I just think they have a very funky vibe. I love the modern and simple designs, and I think they make great earrings.

 

The silver in these earrings is sterling silver, and is stamped with the .925 stamp.

These earrings measure 24mm x 15mm x 5mm.

The earring hooks are sterling silver.

  • The vintage china I use in my jewellery pieces is all recycled from pieces found at garage sales and op. shops, or through vintage dealers, who are happy to pass on some of their less-than-perfect items. I carefully cut out the selected section of china, shape it by hand, then grind the edges nice and smooth. I securely fix the piece into the sterling silver blank, then grout it so it stays firmly in place.
    As with all artisan jewellery, some care needs to be taken to keep your piece in as-new condition.
    The vintage china in your piece may well be up to a hundred years old, and needs to be treated accordingly. It is not recommended that you swim or shower whilst wearing your jewellery, nor that you wear it gardening or playing sport or any other activity where the item may get badly knocked. China is breakable, after all.
    The sterling silver ring and earring hooks are easily adjustable, but care must be taken not to bend them too quickly or too sharply. As with all metals, if they are worked roughly they may break. 

    The sterling silver bezel will enjoy a regular simple polish with a quality silvercloth. If you do use silver polish, do not get it on the china or the grout. Do not use strong chemicals on your jewellery.
