The Process

   
I have designed an original  unique and distictive style of jewelry.
Combining  several jewelry techniques with a process called sgraffito which is mostly used in pottery I have developed these special one of kind keepsakes.
Pieces of clay are cut into shapes and fired then coated with a layer of black slip.The fun part is scratching a design onto the tile , that's the sgraffito part.. I add a coat of clear resin to magnify  the image and give the piece a slight dome.The bezel is hand forged and embellished  in sterling silver to surround the tile. A sterling silver chain is added to complete the piece.
