Making Porcelain Jewelry

Have you ever thought about making porcelain jewelry?

1. Roll out a thin slab of porcelain ( I use cone 6 porcelain in an electric kiln).

2. Cut out shapes and either “roll” the top to make a channel for the necklace to slide through, or place a wire that can withstand the firing into the top. Make impressions into the clay.

3. Bisque fire to cone 04,

4. Rub black underglaze all over and wipe off with a damp sponge.

5. Fire again to cone 6.
