Kyoung-Joa has studied in Korea and Germany & hand crafts porcelain jewelry in her in-home studio in NJ.
High-fire porcelain clay is rolled out into thin slabs. Then, the porcelain clay slab is hand-cut into small shapes and figures, each edge and surface buffed and finished with water and sponges. The pieces are then bisque fired once, then hand-glazed with brushes and droplet techniques. Finally, the pieces are glazed to cone 9 in oxidation. Once the jewelry pieces have cooled, they are hand-finished and handcrafted with sterling silver clasps, wires, and finishings forming them into bracelets, earrings, and necklaces.
