Kenwood Porcelain

Kenwood Porcelain is a collection of ceramic jewelry handmade by Tom Hoadley.  The various patterns are created by layering and manipulating slices of colored porcelain to form a block of patterened clay, a technique called Nerikomi.  This block is then cut into shapes to form the jewelry elements.  After firing, the beads and earrings are tumbled in water to create a smooth matte finish.  The necklaces are strung on waxed linen and the ear wires are sterling silver.
