I wanted to create a special setting for this chubby little porcelain lentil. The pattern on it is distinctly Asian, so I aimed at a copper framework that echoed the roof detail of a pagoda. The three curving supports are soldered together and accented with more copper wire. A double-sided, tube-riveted tongue of textured copper hangs behind and below the porcelain, and dangles a little disc of recycled glass in sea green. The necklace portion is constructed of hand-sewn, hand-dyed silk string in a pale teal by Jamn Glass, and simple oval copper chain. It fastens at the back with one of my hand-formed S-clasps in copper, with the ring portion of the clasp adorned with two little lampwork spacers in turquoise by Meital.

The hook end of the clasp slips perfectly into the links of chain, making it fully adjustable. I've left it rather long--it measures 27" to the pendant portion; the yoke holding the porcelain is 3" across. Wearing it at full length, on a slimmish neck, leaves the pendant focal hitting just at the solar plexus, right at the base of the breastbone (on a fuller neck it will hang a bit higher). It can easily be adjusted to hang at the center of the chest (about 18")--there will be a length of chain adorned with lampwork you can wear in front or in back. If you think you would like to wear it very short (as in the far right picture), please convo me as the chain portion will need to be shortened; or if you think you would prefer to wear it only at mid length, convo me, and I can shorten the chain portion for you to make it easier to wear.
