Sterling silver rope chain 17 3/4 inches or 45 cm.

{PORCELAIN}
Each piece is handmade by me in porcelain clay. Porcelain clay is different in composition from other clays, because of this it’s stronger. Because it’s stronger one can create much thinner items; and where it’s thin, it’s translucent, also typical for porcelain. It need to be fired at a temperature which is higher than average for other clays as well. It’s fired twice, once at a low temperature, after which I can apply glazes. And the second firing at the high temperature were it goes translucent. Natural porcelain is white, but one can add pigments or stains to the clay to give it other colours, the colour is then throughout. When a glaze is applied, it is only on the surface.

{CLEANING}
Soak in a soft soap solution and use a brush and toothpaste if need be, rinse and dry well.

{SHIPPING}
Will be shipped by registered post.The gift box will go in to a box or envelop with bubble wrap or other protective material for shipping. For this I use as much recycled boxes, wrap as possible, to safe the environment.
