This beautiful, one-of-a-kind, whimsical necklace is hand crafted of porcelain beads, silver plated beads,Turquoise, coral, numerous glazes, with a silver toned chain and silver toned lobster clasp. Finally it is topped it off with a smaller handmade porcelain polka dot bead 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 - 23"
Length of necklace - 20.5"
