'Lucky' studs - contrasting rectangles.
Porcelain and gold lustre with sterling silver posts and scroll backs.
These hand made studs are both practical and contemporary. The bold contrasting shapes are sure to get you noticed.
Part of my 'Desire' range which explores the juxtaposition of contrasting materials and their hidden connections, these studs are the perfect gift for someone special or an affordable treat for yourself.
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.
