Ceramic Clay Jewelry

I have a disability.
To help me distract from my pain I play with mud!
Well, rather I play with clay! It is very calming.
I draw my design, then make it from clay, bisque fire it, then glaze for final firing of cone 6 or cone 10.
Then I string beads on using waxed linen.
The beads are usually Gemstones and Czech beads.
I like to add leather and metal findings too. Jewelry making is very rewarding for me.
