Handmade jewelry

What is the clay used for the production of handcrafted pendants?

Clay is a natural material, already known in ancient times. Even today we find vases, amphorae and statues perfectly preserved in our museums. Other names commonly used for clay are earthenware and stoneware. It is extracted from sediments and is a fine-grained natural rock.

Why does the artist use clay?

The clay is easily moldable at hand and after firing it becomes very hard-wearing and long lasting.

Which are the production processes?

After being molded, the crafted pendant must be dried completely. This process may take a week. The dried pendants are polished to get a smooth surface and then they get a first firing at approx. 1,200° C for many hours. After firing the raw pendant is ready for glazing.

How do the crafted pendants get colored?

To color the pendant, the artist uses only lead-free glazes, according to his inspiration. The glaze must dry for approx. 1 week; after which it is fired a second time at approx. 1,000° C. With this firing we get the glaze and color brilliance of the surface.

Why are the crafted pendants unique pieces?

Because of the artist’s choice to produce only a piece and, on the other hand, it is very difficult, almost impossible, to control the glazing effect to create two equal pieces.

How is the crafted pendant delivered?

The pendant comes in a nice box with two metal necklaces of different length.
