This necklace is made with real barnacle shells and four ceramic beads glazed in turquoise and lava red, each individually textured with seashells. The beads are suspended on a sterling silver snake chain 45 cm long.
Each piece will be carefully tissue wrapped and sent in a gift box (even if it is a gift to yourself!)
I collect natural finds and plant specimens on my walks which I then use in my ceramic jewellery making.
First I texture and shape the clay and let it dry. Then I soften the edges on each piece to ensure they feel nice when worn on the skin. When this is all done I bisque fire the pieces in a kiln.
Once bisque fired, they are ready for glazing. Depending on the design, I paint each piece with underglaze and apply two to three coats of top glaze. Then everything can go in the kiln again for the final high temperature firing.
Once I have got all of the components, I start assembling individual pieces of jewellery. Sometimes I include other materials such as natural sea shells or carve my own beads from interesting pieces of wood.
My jewellery is made with sterling silver or surgical steel, I also use suede and hemp cord for necklaces.
I enjoy every step in the making process and hope that people will get the same joy from wearing one of my pieces.
