All the beautiful, hand-made jewellery on this page has been made from shards of original Nantgarw Porcelain guaranteed to have been made by William Billingsley at Nantgarw China Works between 1813 and 1820. Some shards (most of the white undecorated) have been found onsite during archaeological digs; the coloured pieces are from badly damaged plates which have been donated to the museum. All the enamelling and gilding is original.
Each unique piece has been mounted in hallmarked sterling silver by local jeweller/ceramic conservator Kimmi Davies and is available exclusively from Nantgarw China Works. The silver mounts are individually made to fit the shape of the shard. All the chains are solid silver and measure approx 20 inches.
The jewellery is shipped in a quality jewellery box with an explanation of its history. All profits from the sales go direct to Nantgarw China Works & Museum, a registered charity.
Postage and packing is £4.95 to UK addresses and is added to orders. Please contact us for international orders.
