This beauty is soooo extremely delicate and difficult to create, the success rate is 1 in 4. But the lucky ones are incredibly stunning and strong. A perfect reminder of the woman who wears it. 😊👍🏻
Of all the necklaces one can wear, a dramatic statement necklace is sure to be the icing to any outfit ...one as simple yet as strong as this piece, will surely demand attention. I created this piece as an expression of art, of strength and of style. The necklace features 13 individual porcelain pieces that together form this amazing chain!. They are all smooth and naked, as the porcelain is left unglazed. The pieces have been low fired and high fired twice up to 2200F and sand-blasted to achieve a perfect smoothness, that feels like velvet against the skin, but is as strong as bones. The necklace was assembled with nude leather string, knotted artfully to create an effortless nautical look. There is a silver plated clasp on the back for easy use. The entire piece took over 20 hours from design to done, in my opinion, it is pure lovelyness. A fantastic piece for the ultimate fashionista.
Necklace altogether is 23 inches in lentgh, but can be adjusted with backside clasp and chain.
Porcelain part is 12.75 inches long x .60 inches wide

♥ HOW IT'S MADE ♥ -- Pottery is a labor of love, patience and delicate craftsmanship .Every single piece I make goes through a long metamorphosis...I first design my pieces either in my head or sketch them out in my handy dandy notebook....then from a slab of hard, cold porcelain clay I hand-sculpt it or shape it with molds until it is how I envisioned it...The next step is the drying stage, which takes about a week and it is so important in order to keep the shape and strength of the piece . Once dry, I sand it and afterwards it gets kiln fired first at 1800 degrees. Once bisque fired, I glaze it all by hand (**with lead-free glazes**) and the it is ready to be fired at 2200 degrees. The overall process takes about 2-3 weeks to complete, achieving beautiful and unique piece to treasure for years!.-- every one of my kitchen pieces is food safe, dishwasher safe, oven safe and microwave safe!...Of course, like any porcelain, ceramic or pottery piece, handle with care and it will remain beautiful, useful and amazing for a very loooong time ^_^
♥ SO WHY POTTERY? ♥ -- ceramics are a durable and intricate material, where colors melt together, and textures come alive with unpredictable shades after being kiln fired. Every item is unique and very special!
