Melamine!

Over the past year, I have thrifted the country for amazing plates, but always skipped by the plastic melamine plates. Silly me! They are a great solution for me to make a really inexpensive line that sticks to my dinnerware theme! I break them up with a hammer, shape them with wire snips and the file down the sides to create smooth edges. They are topped with a simple jump ring and nylon coated steel cord. Above are a few of my first batch which will soon be available on Etsy.
