More repurposed china


Yesterday I went for a browse in my local charity shops, and the cats of the day were these plates.  All different shapes and colors, but very decorative in their own way.



 If everything goes to plan they will be turned innto something like this.





And if they break during the drilling process they’ll become jewelry.
I got several question about what tools I use to cut the ceramics, so I thought I’d let you in on the “secret”. I use my beloved Dremel, with various diamond tip drill bits. It’s a messy and time consuming job best done outside (Important: use safety glasses) but I find the end result well worth it.
