PORCELAIN JEWELRY

Accompany me into the world of “white gold” and create your very personal pieces of porcelain jewelry under my guidance.

No matter whether you already have a concrete idea of a special piece of jewelry, whether you would like to create your own wedding jewelry or whether you would like to make your own presents for family and friends to give as a gift – you will learn a lot and above all: you will take home some unique, precious pieces of jewelry.

The workshop will take place in a small group of 4 people. We meet on 4 dates once a week for 2 hours.

If the course days/dates do not suit you, please contact me and we will arrange a flexible appointment.

The course is suitable for all levels of experience.

The material such as porcelain and glaze as well as the firing costs are included in the price. The costs for the jewelry elements such as hooks, necklaces, earstuds are to be paid additionally. Depending on which elements you decide on (gilded brass, sterlingsilver, gilded sterlingsilver) and in which quantity you need them, these costs vary a lot. Of course you are welcome to bring your own necklaces or jewelry elements and maybe give new life to a vintage piece.

PRICE: 160 €

The workshop offers an insight into different techniques of making porcelain jewelry and will be structured as follows:

1

introduction & production

Short introduction to different techniques such as slip casting, cutting, embossing, punching,… On the basis of some of my jewelry pieces and photos we will find out what you would like to create. You are also welcome to bring your own ideas and prints as inspiration.

After that we start to create. I have porcelain in several colors and different types of clay in stock, so you can start making individual pieces of jewelry right away.

2

create, create, create

At our second meeting we will apply, continue and deepen what we learned at the first session. Today it´s all about making the elements that we want to turn into jewelry. After this meeting your ceramic pieces will be fired in biscuit firing at 900 degrees.

3

glazing

Your jewelry pieces are bisqued fired and ready to be glazed. You can leave your white or colored pieces pure and glaze them with transparent glaze or you can decorate them with special underglaze pens before glazing. The glaze firing at 1250 degrees is next.

4

finalizing the jewelry

Your ceramic works are ready. Today you can purchase jewelry elements like hooks, necklaces, ear studs and eyelets from my inventory or use the elements you brought yourself. We assemble our ceramic pieces to unique pieces of jewelry.
