Ancient Tribal Jewellery Components

Remember not so long ago I designed some new ceramic jewellery components, mainly ceramic pendants with a hand carved and stamped design based on the whirlpool Corryvreckan? You can read about it here.

I decided to use the same stamp on some new black clay and make some rustic pendants and earring charms.

I was disappointed when I opened the kiln as they were a lot more ‘rustic’ than I’d planned. I couldn’t see the potential for these pieces and that’s where my Facebook friends stepped in with fresh eyes and suggested I try out a wash of metallic acrylic paint on them.

I have to say I am more than happy with these pieces now. They now look like they have just been dig up, my mind is thinking of ancient tribal jewellery fit for an Iceni queen, jewellery for Boudicca. Or Cartimandua queen of the Brigantes, or maybe something a Viking shield maiden would wear.

I’m pleased that I now have two completely different styles to add to my range of ceramic jewellery components in my Etsy shop, now I just need to find the time to list them.

    Very nice and love the rustic look too! Correctomundo, listing in the shops does take some time, as does getting decent enough pix! I’ll be back into the swing in October, when I get back to the U.S.

    Thank you Alysen. I think doing the pix and listing has to be the worst part. I’m looking forward to seeing your new makes when you are back in the swing
