Little twiggy earrings and pendants now glazed.

Earrings and pendants are glazed both sides (reversible!) Marcia Kuperberg.
I wanted them to be glazed both sides, so they had to be hung, carefully spaced on wire so as not to touch each other before going into the kiln. 
I couldn't lie them on kiln shelves (normally the case with other ceramic pieces ) as the glaze would stick to the shelf causing them to break on removal. Here they are, glazed.

I'm happy with the results. The cobalt oxide and chrome oxides have worked well to give rich blue/green effects and the twig carving into the red clay has come out well. The white slip has become pale blue due to the delicate sponging of the cobalt - slightly bluer than expected but it looks good.

Thanks, Rose! I'd welcome your advice on beads to use with them when making them into earrings - hanging.

Glad you like them. I've kept a pair for myself and wear them with a matching "twiggy" pendant. As I have a lot of blue toned clothes, I find them very useful and wear them frequently. They are very affordable - only £12.00 plus postage.
