Making Ceramic Jewelry with Jen Allen & Maia Leppo

In this video, which is the first in our two-part series Ceramic Jewelry Making, ceramic artist Jen Allen provides an introduction into making unique ceramic jewelry. Jen covers the basics of forming clay components for custom earrings, necklaces, and brooches. She also presents an introduction to working with store-bought and handmade metal findings to finish the pieces. This video will give you a good foundation to begin making ceramic jewelry without purchasing a lot of additional equipment.

Runtime: 1 hour, 11 minutes

    Excellent Tutorials. I would like to know the density of glaze used and where do we get that injection bottle. Very easy to draw miniature art on clays. is this a porcelain or polymer clay?

  • Great video, I am inspired to try making some earrings. I would love to know where you get your supplies. I have looked at several different places online and can’t find the wire you were talking about or the earring posts.
