This stunning necklace designed and made by Lynne Tan, is actually a piece of wearable miniature sculpture, hand-built from black porcelain clay with a tempered stainless steel coil.
The porcelain is lightly sanded after firing so that the surface is smooth to the touch, but without a glaze so that the organic rawness of the clay’s muddy origins can be fully appreciated. She also tries to preserve the fluidity of clay in the forms she makes. This piece is truly a work of art.
All components can be washed with liquid soap, but just be sure to dry off the metal wire. If necessary, the porcelain parts can be gently scrubbed with dishwashing liquid and a scrub sponge (apply abrasion, not pressure). Sterling and stainless wire can be polished with a jewelry cloth when needed.
