Locally found, upcycled pottery shard jewellery. Each piece comes with its own story
Bluebird Leaf Stud Earrings – £18
Connecting you to the land and history from where it came, the pottery shard these earrings were made from was found in Aldridge by a friend of the artist in his backyard. It was made in Middleport by Burleigh and the pattern is ‘Bluebird’. Produced by Burleigh for over 100 years, it was originally known as Chinese Peacock. The shards depict a small leaf. They measure 6 mm across.
Sterling Silver earring posts ensure you won’t have to worry about any metal allergies or green earlobes! In addition, the earrings come with comfortable, high quality plastic backings. Unlike metal fasteners, they stay put, and don’t make a dent in the back of your ear. They ensure you can wear the backings anywhere along the earring post so the earring stays in place.
Aqua Asiatic Pheasant Flower Necklace – £60
Connecting you to the land and history from where it came, the pottery shard in this necklace was unearthed from a puddle near the church in Eccleshall. The shard has a blue and white pattern with a flower, hatched pattern and a dotty border similar to Enoch Wedgwood’s Asiatic Pheasant, but the image is too small to confirm.
An aqua-blue faceted chalcedony seemed the perfect pairing for this pottery shard found in a puddle. It is set in a Sterling Silver and a tiny blue amazonite bead finishes off the extender – perfect to dangle down your back.
This sterling silver necklace was made to last. The soldered jump rings in this necklace provide you with a strong, quality necklace that isn’t going to break from a slight tug.
A 3 inch extender allows you to wear your necklace with a variety of different necklines. Including the extender, the necklace measures 20.5 inches long and can sit just below your collarbone, or worn as a choker.

A cute and simple design, perfect for everyday wear! Created in Sterling Silver.
