Made of China…

As much as I like inhaling the fumes of freshly made plastic goods, the tag ‘Made in China’ doesn’t fill me with enthusiasm.  Made OF China however is a whole different story…  In fact, I think this is the first time I have encountered ceramic jewellery and at the Urbis centre in Manchester (where I am this weekend…) is where I came across these bone china teacup bracelets by Abigail Mary-Rose Clerk.  Adorned with ribbons, painted flowers, trinkets and slinky bit of silver, they’re probably more ornate than your average tea cup…  Made in China?  Made of China?  I think I know which one to opt for if I’m feeling extra careful and non clutzy…

  1. The last one is so ideal. Their lovely, I’d just be terrified that I wouild bump into something and it would smash into millions of little pieces. Not a risk I’d like to take.

  2. I love the look of these, I was recently lured towards ceramic accessories myself in the form of barbie rings at mixco.co.uk, but am unsure how long either would actually survive being worn by me.

  3. I don’t think I’ve ever seen ceramic jewelry before–it’s lovely. It evokes to me antique china and all the enamel jewelry I love.

  4. Oh wow they are gorgeous but I would so scared to break one of them? I’m too hyper-active for that kind accessory. They strike me as a drinking tea while wearing pearls kind of thing.

  5. Isn’t the Urbis just great? I stumbled upon it when I was looking for shelter from the rain… ended up seeing the Matthew Williamson exhibition… which is always a lovely surprise on a rainy day.

  6. I work right near the urbis centre and have never thought to go in, looks great! will have to check it out!
