Clay To Wear

I'm not much of a jewelry person myself
but I seem to be attracted to making jewelry. 

Clay lends itself to this expression readily. 

I like the juxtaposition of shiny versus matt surfaces. I'm also enjoying the addition of black underglazes to give depth and a sense of history to the pieces. 

The necklaces have a straightforward and practical approach
with the use of sliding knots to make adjustments.

And with an eye on reuse, I've discovered discarded guitar strings. They've found a myriad of uses within my art, the latest being the connection between the necklace and the pendant.

This adds the "industrial" touch that pleases my aesthetic.

Just the beginning.
