Porcelain Coral Earrings in Gold with Genuine Pearls
These are wonderful, contemporary pieces to celebrate the ocean and our reefs, sculpted to reflect the texture of coral. They are glazed with a genuine gold luster around their rims and finished with a mother of pearl luster on the front faces. All wire is 14K gold filled, and each piece fabricated with genuine pearls. Also available in silver with solid Sterling wire.
These tiny sculptural pieces are hand carved and sculpted from the very finest porcelain clay that has wonderful translucent properties. Each piece goes through several firings, with several stages of glazing. It is a detailed and obsessive process of creating surfaces that are influenced by the patterns and textures found in nature.
The ceramic portion of the pieces are 5/8 in x .5 in, or 1.7 cm x 1.4 cm. The total length with ear wire component is 2.25 in, or 5.8 cm.
These wearable art pieces are made of the same material as fine china. Porcelain shares many of the same properties as glass; these are delicate, super light, and if you treat them kindly they will last generations.
