This is a handmade, unglazed porcelain bead statement necklace. Each bead is hand formed, fired, and assembled into the design you see above - no molds or patterns are used.
Each bead is made out of porcelain clay and fired in an electric kiln to about 2170 degrees Fahrenheit.
The beads on this necklace range from 5/8 inch to 3/4 inch in diameter. As displayed the collection of beads measures about 3 1/2 inches wide by 3/4 inches deep.
The beads are displayed on an 34 inch long beige silicone cord with antique gold plated brass cord ends and antique brass plated steel lobster clasp. The length of the cord is appropriate for the number and size of the beads, laying near the diaphram, but a shorter or longer cord is a possible option.
Model photo is for necklace size and scale demonstration, and items in the photo is not included in this listing.

Payment must be received before shipping. Nebraska residents will be charged 7.25% sales tax, calculated automatically upon checkout. Customers who opt to pick up their order from me directly may also pay in person.
Domestic orders (USA):
I ship items within 1-3 business days, though usually it will be closer to one day than three. Please check the listing and/or your invoice for shipping times. All shipping times are estimates.
Customers who are local to Lincoln may pick up their order - contact me for more information.
International packages are shipped using International First Class Mail for items under 4 pounds or Priority International for heavier shipments. Please allow 4-6 weeks for the delivery of your international package.
You are responsible for all duty, customs, or any other charges imposed by your country above and beyond the USPS (United States Postal Service) postal charges that you already paid. These may be due when you pick up your package.
I will do my best to check on any restrictions of what can be shipped before I send out a package. If for some reason your purchase can not legally be sent to you, I will refund your money.
Charges for international mail can be hard to estimate. If I have over charged you for shipping, I will refund the difference.
All items are packed with the utmost care -- wrapped in bubble wrap, air bags, and double boxed when necessary. I want you to receive your order in one piece! If the order breaks in the mail (and it is insured), I will work with you to file a claim. You will be able to choose a replacement, or I can refund your purchase (minus the paid shipping.)
I use a combination of new and clean, reused packing materials.
I do not include any sort of receipt or invoice in my packages - one can be printed from your Etsy order.
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Please let me know if there are any problems with your order. I can't do anything about items lost in the mail if there is no tracking information, so do consider selecting Priority Mail delivery.
RETURNS AND EXCHANGES ARE UNAVAILABLE, PERIOD. SHIPPING CERAMIC WORK CAN BE WORRYING EVEN WITH THE BEST PACKAGING, SO I'D RATHER NOT HAVE ANYTHING TAKE MORE TRIPS THAN NECESSARY. PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTION OF THE ITEM AND ASK QUESTIONS IF NECESSARY.
REFUNDS ON BROKEN WORK ARE ONLY AVAILABLE IF THE PACKAGE IS INSURED - I STRONGLY RECOMMEND SELECTING PRIORITY MAIL FOR THE INCLUDED INSURANCE. I MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO PACKAGE YOUR ITEMS SAFELY AND SECURELY, BUT THINGS DO BREAK IN THE MAIL.
I can create (or recreate) most items in my shop though not always with the exact same clay, glaze, or look (think siblings or cousins instead of twins.) My turnaround time is typically 3-6 weeks though rush orders are possible.
HAHA NOPE. If you've ever seen one of my wrapped packages you'd probably pay me to ensure I don't wrap your purchase. I make things out of clay, not paper and ribbon.
I am open to consignment for most all of my work - contact me for more information.
I do not produce work for wholesale.
Gallery or other venue: I'm always looking for venues! Contact me for more information.
