Jewelry- porcelain pieces

I have been trying to get the correct size of porcelain piece to fit into a particular size bezel.. The challenge was to compensate for the shrinkage of the porcelain when fired. After a trial run of making blanks of several sizes I have the cutter that will work very well. I am trying to make the pieces with tiny doll heads from my collection of German doll bits and pieces. The photo shows the wet pieces before drying, cleaning and firing.
