Broken china project

This is not a new project for me. I started making these little angels last year from broken china plates. Can you see that her "dress" is made from a plate?  My friend Sarah at Quality handcut mosaic tiles by Judy Snow on Etsy helps with the cutting and provides the dresses.  She was very sweet to respond to my custom order last year and immediately understood my vision. I just came across three of the cut outs today while organizing my studio supplies! I'm feeling inspired again!
The angels are altered using scrapbook paper, lace, vintage hardware...whatever I have on hand. I then mount the finished angel on a book cover and hang with lace or chain.
I love using found objects for their halos and wings.  So far I've only used wire for their legs but have considered skeleton keys. 
If you have followed my blog for a few months, you may remember this post.  I made a little fairy too from broken or cut china.  My daughter's love of fairies inspired me.
This is a fun project and great way to use your smalls that you have collected.  I'm going to display my angels with some of my Christmas decorations and link this post up to White Wednesday at Faded Charm.  Have a safe week everyone as you rush around finishing up holiday shopping and such.  Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy day to stop by here! I love your comments and appreciate your follows.
