Yolanda's Clay

(Taken from her Etsy Profile)


I have been working with clay for 8 years, and making beads and pendants since early 2006. I enjoy creating my pieces but the most fun comes when I open the kiln and see the results of a long process in all different color glazes, shapes and sizes. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

I am a proud member of Fired Clay Artists and Beads of Clay, CCCOE California Crafter's Club of Etsy and AOSC Artisans of Southern California Etsy. Visit www.yolanda.firedclayartists.com for some of my other items.

Porcelain Face Pendant
Ancient face on a blue stone glaze. Beautiful face with some texture and dimension added by glaze (back not glazed). Hang from wire embedded at top. Size approx. 1" by 2".

All pieces are handmade and bisque fired, then glazed and fired to cone 5 in two kilns in my home studio in Southern California.

Porcelain Necklace
Colorful and fun necklace, handmade beads fired and glazed in bright colors. Assembled with silver toned metals, adding glass beads. Necklace can be adjusted with a simple knot at the end of the faux suede cord. Wear it long or short.

All beads are handmade, fired twice up to 2200ºF

Twig Pendant
Two pendants left made of porcelain, this was my first mold I made with some twigs I found on my walk. Earthy look, all three glazed with different glazes, and all pretty. $5.00 each. Decide which one you'd like from left to right colors are, ash green (sold), celadon, old world. They are about 1" by 1.25". Back is glazed. Simply hang from cord, silk thread for a casual look. Look at my other listings for beads so you can add for a bigger piece of jewelry. I'll add a jumpring if you wish.
