Porcelain Jewelry

green (unfired) porcelain jewelry parts waiting to be sanded

Not content to let Mr. Cranky have all the fun, I have been making jewelry too. These pieces will be grouped into necklaces. I am making some beads to dangle down from them too.

Here they are after decorating with cobalt slip.
I think they look like candy. :) Or cookies! (eat your heart out, Martha)
Tomorrow I'll bisque fire them, then I'll put a clear glaze on top and fire them again.
I'm thinking brooches and stick pins would be nice too, but I'm waiting to see how these look.
Now I have to research findings and cords and such.
Anyone have any good resources for jewelry parts?
