Anne-Marie says: Nine luminous whirls of hand-pressed porcelain are pinned with sterling silver and a semi-precious gems onto braided remnants of Indian sari silk. I created each porcelain piece myself, firing them twice and glazing them with turquoise and yellow glazes. As for the design of this lovely bib necklace, it practically designed itself! After bringing them home from the kiln, the circles scattered out of the bag into this exact order on my workbench, and I thought their organic look was so beautiful I created a necklace beneath them. The sterling silver links are also hand forged and hammered by yours truly to finish a truly unique piece.
