This beautiful, one-of-a-kind, whimsical necklace is hand crafted of porcelain beads, mixed metal with the use of numerous glazes with a copper and metal chain. Finally it is topped it off with a glass beads on the extension chain. Each porcelain bead is carefully hand formed and shaped in my studio here in Northern California. I then fire each bead in my kiln up to the temps of 2800 degrees, meticulously applying up to 4 to 6 coats of glaze and then re firing them. After this firing, I take all the beads and assemble them into necklaces, bracelets and earrings adding copper and silver wire, glass, coral, stones, shells and mixed metal. I finished this necklace with a nugget metal charm that says live.
Overall length with extension chain - 25.5
