A few years ago I started making porcelain focal pieces that I could build a piece of jewelry around using wire, beads and whatever interesting things from my stash that struck my fancy. The above pictures show how I have used pendants, faces beads etc. I have made my own molds and created lots of fun pieces. I work in porcelain and fire it to a cone 10 for the maximum strength then follow with glaze firings then I color using china painting (overglaze techniques) to finish the piece. Sometimes I add a final firing with gold trim. I also make porcelain buttons. Just scroll down through the previous posts and there are pictures of some of my buttons.
