This porcelain piece measures 1″ from top to tip and is fired with a glossy deep cobalt blue transparent glaze. I’ve accented each porcelain shape with real gold luster on the edges and fired for a third time, adding a little extra shine! It hangs from an 18 inch gold plated chain.
The porcelain clay is textured using molds that I made using vintage crocheted lace doilies. You can read about my process making these earrings and necklaces in my blog post, Lacy Days of Spring.
I create my jewelry and buttons by shaping porcelain or stoneware clay and texturing most with stamps that I make. I make most stamps by collecting textures from all sorts of items. There are great textures everywhere, from nature to items found around the house! After drying thoroughly, the porcelain pieces are bisque fired to 1888 degrees F. I then glaze each piece and fire them a second time, this time to 2232 degrees F to ensure durability and a nice finish.
I have a great time creating my pieces and hope that you enjoy them as much as I do!
