'Smooth Tube' necklace
A hand made 30x12mm glazed porcelain tube on an 18" sterling silver chain.
From my 'Tubular' collection. This sculptural and contemporary range highlights the pure, smooth quality of porcelain. Clean and dynamic, this piece can be worn with most outfits.
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 combined with sterling silver trace chain to reveal the beautiful result you see in the picture.
