Ceramic Goddess Pendant - Cobweb Jasper
Now then, this one a bit special!!
Hand sculpted goddess pendant, with a Cobweb Jasper genstone.
I created the base, and high fired it with embedded, hammered wires to act as a clasp for the gemstone. I then fired it again with Bronze clay, Oriental Caramel and gloss glaze. Applied with Sterling Silver clay and Gold lustre, and fired once more.
I adhered the Jasper in the centre, and then gently hammered down the clasp pins to hold it securely in place.
I'm more than a little bit chuffed with this piece!!!
