'Brave' necklace 2. (14ct filled gold)
Glazed porcelain with 22 ct gold lustre and white fresh water pearl on 18" 14ct gold filled chain..
From my 'Fem' collection, this delicate yet strong pendant is Inspired by the beautiful simplicity of wild foxgloves and their capacity to bloom in difficult conditions.
HOW ITS MADE:
My handmade porcelain jewellery is first sculpted in wet porcelain. I use tools to shape and create the detail and then fire the piece in a kiln to dry and harden. Next I polish the surface, refining the lovely smooth texture and then paint it with clear glaze. After firing the piece again at over 1200 degrees celcious (which purifys and strengthens the material) I hand paint 22ct gold lustre into the desired areas. It is then fired for a third and final time to reveal the beautiful result you see in the picture.
