'Brave' studs. (Sterling silver posts)
Glazed porcelain with 22 ct gold lustre and sterling silver ear posts and scrolls.
From my 'Fem' collection, these delicate yet strong studs are a statement of empowerment and fortitude. With comfortable solid silver posts, they are designed to be worn every day
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.
