Thank you for stopping by!

Saturday, November 8, 2014


This rustic ceramic pendant necklace I have made from five stoneware ceramic beads; fired to approximately 2200 degrees. Combined with vintage handmade African trade beads, colored glass beads, and genuine cow hide leather cord. The cord has been knot tied so that it is adjustable.

I have left the ceramic beads their natural earthy clay color, with a smooth finish.

Longest length of tied cord is 11", or 22" circumference around the neck not including the pendant; just enough to slip over your head loosely.

Pendant is 4.1/2" long.
