'Chevron' studs. (Sterling silver posts)
Glazed porcelain and sterling silver ear posts and scrolls.
From my 'Deconstruction' collection, these Striking geometric studs explore the desire for a simplified existence free from unnecessary clutter. Clean and contemporary, these studs will go with any outfit and are comfortable enough to wear 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). It is then fitted with solid silver posts and backs to reveal the beautiful result you see in the picture.
