Julie Ames, the artisan behind the Broken Plate Pendant Company, gleefully breaks old and new plates and transforms the shards into wearable art. Her distinctive jewelry pieces take advantage of the pottery patterns which she completes by surrounding each shard with silver using a stained glass technique. Some of her pendant designs come in pairs which she calls her friendship necklaces.

She haunts thrift and antique shops as well as department stores for her raw material. She also offers a valuable service for people who wish to have a keepsake made from broken pieces of heirloom pottery or wedding china.
