ABOUT THE BRAND

THE PROCESS

BROKEN CHINA CHARMS

Our exclusive broken china charms start as self-sourced mosaics from various antique stores. After smashing the china down into small fragments, the design process begins. A few select pieces are carefully clipped and then sanded down using a glass grinding machine. Once the mosaic has its proper shape, they are securely mounted onto gold-plated metals. Finally, each piece gets baked and cured in the oven before drafting the final design.

Fun Fact: Several ceramics in our collection can be traced back all the way to the 1830s!

And yes, all of this is handmade by me!

- a note from me

Hi! My name is Sam and I’m the creative, jewelry-loving, 23-year-old girl that runs this show behind the scenes. Crafting has been a deeply-rooted passion of mine for as long as I can remember. It's more than just a hobby - it's a part of who I am. When I was 10, my best friend & I strung over 500+ bracelets & sold them at craft shows on the weekends. After countless days of sitting in the same exact spot on the carpet of my living room apartment crafting new designs for 16 hour days straight…I think it’s fair to admit that true passions really never go away.

Since April 1, 2023, I've spent every second building out my jewelry collection with so many unique pieces. From hours at antique stores searching for the perfect chinaware plate to turn into charms, to testing products from hundreds of different sellers across the country, I can assure your piece was made with love.

I've poured my heart & soul into every piece that you can find on this website. I find so much joy in being able to create such unique, special pieces that can truly tell a story. I can't wait to share so many more memories with you all.

& I hope you love it too!
