This handmade Saguaro cactus pendant has a wire-wrapped sterling silver bail accented with silver beads and Swarovski crystals. The hand-painted porcelain cabochon is coated in mother-of-pearl. The mother-of-pearl coating gives the cacti an ever changing look. The round pendant is 1-1/8" in diameter. It is hanging on a 16" ribbon cord that has a 1" extender.
Porcelain is extremely light weight and because of the number of kiln firings it is extremely durable.
We do our best to take pictures that reflect the actual color of the porcelain focal. The reflection of the mother of pearl coating may cause the color in the picture to be slightly different from the actual color of the piece. Another factor involved is the screen that is used to view the piece. This is why we take a variety of photos. If you have any questions regarding the color or piece, please contact us.
Broken & Renewed Glass Art is the embodiment of my journey into mixed media jewelry which began over 25 years ago when I started working with stained glass in Tucson, AZ.
After moving to St. Charles, MO, I was introduced to glass fusing. I love the dynamic way that color can change when heated in a kiln. The variety of color possibilities is amazing...talk about rainbows. Learning to wire wrap became my way to turn the cabochons (focal pieces) into pendants, bracelets, earrings, and other accessories. I enjoy working with hand-painted porcelain cabochons…which are both colorful and lightweight…along with fused glass, Silver Silk knitted cord, satin cord, along with a variety of beads, wire and findings.
Throughout the years, I have taken classes to learn different techniques including Kumihimo cord and bead work, a unique addition to my portfolio, together with a variety of new wire wrapping techniques. I continue to learn through classes and online sources drawing inspiration and encouragement from them and allowing me to continue my passion for creating unique pieces of wearable art.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Because our jewelry is individually handcrafted, it is important to answer any of your questions/concerns up front. Please do not hesitate to contact us directly before you make your purchase. Thank you.
The pictures that you see in the shop are taken using a photo booth. The lighting is as natural as it can be. Many of the porcelain pieces are coated in mother of pearl and because of that they reflect varying colors. Please be aware that this can affect what you see. Also be aware that your screen will see things differently than mine. We work with a base color pallet but when mixing colors together new colors evolve. If you are concerned about coloring, please let us know before you purchase the piece and we will take several additional pictures and forward them to you. NO ITEM CAN BE RETURNED JUST BECAUSE THE COLOR ISN’T EXACTLY WHAT YOU EXPECTED. Thank you for understanding.
We do take custom orders. Time involved in processing evolves around several things.
- If ordering a piece with a porcelain focal, do we have that cab in our inventory or do we have to create it. If it is in our inventory, the next question is whether I have it in stock here or does it have to be shipped by my coworker. The time involved varies. We can discuss all of this prior to placing your order.
- A wire-wrapped piece takes approximately two business days to complete and ship if I have the wire in stock. If it has to be ordered, it can take up to two weeks based on wire delivery.
- Wire-wrapped cuff bracelets take two business days to complete and ship if I have the wire in stock. If it has to be ordered, it can take up to two weeks based on wire delivery.
- Other custom requests will be discussed prior to order.
- And, of course, orders will be processed in the order they are received.
