Upcycled objects made from broken ceramics hold a special place in my heart due to the fact that I am extremely clumsy and I have some amazing ceramics at home–it’s not the best combo :P
I just fell in love with this jewelry created by multi-talented artist Deana Mattos Diefenbach. The necklaces and belts kind of remind me of the exhibits at the archeology museum in Istanbul–where bits and pieces of broken pottery were pieced back together to make breath-taking pots, jugs and vases, part old and part new.
Check out Deana’s Etsy shop for more of her artwork. She also has some gorgeous paintings–her watercolors are among my favorite of her painted pieces.

So cool! I love these pieces as well! Deana is the queen of upcycling (next to Justina, of course)! A very talented artist indeed (who also happens to be my cousin)! Love the post. Xx, s
Hi Justine! Wondering how she attached the porcelain to the hardware without drilling holes?
Deana Mattos Diefenbach says
E-6000 onto a bail, or any blank hardware
Mary Summerour says
look up jewelry bales on Google. They have a flat piece and a loop. You glue the flat piece onto the ceramic with the loop portion sticking up. I use E6000 a lot but haven’t
tried it on ceramics. Happy jewelry making!
Hi Shannie, you are the sweetest. Thanks for commenting.
Justina, I love this post, Thanks so much. As usual so nicely written.
Made my day, actually my week, things have been so stressful, this was a cheerful pick me up. :)

Lauren Johnstone says
So pretty! I would paint the edges of the pieces gold, just to add a bit more gypsy sparkle! And sorry if someone has already said this, I’m too tired to read all the above comments :
Hi Lauren, I never thought of that, thanks for the suggestion, I may just have to give that a try. Since I am a painter I happen to have gold on hand.
