Our new studio kitten, Madeline, is perusing the latest issue of Fine Woodworking magazine before getting to work today.
Here is a new flower motif in the making. I chose a dahlia design for inspiration and then began sculpting all the flower petals, from the inside of the flower out. What fun! I can't wait to see how this design will look with translucent glazes!
Here are the bright, colorful new additions that are on their way to this shop! Stay tuned for more hand carved porcelain stud earrings. Five designs and nine colors to choose from. Only $18 a pair. Free shipping in the U.S.!

About

Life is meant to be shared with those most important to us.

“Once upon a time, there was a guy who spent his days working alone in his woodshop. The guy’s wife spent her days working alone in her ceramic studio. One day, the guy and his wife decided that life was too short to work alone. They determined that they really needed a way to spend more time together. We are Tom and Christine Evans, and this is our story.”

Drawing on our art, design, and fine craft educations, we have co-created a stunning collection of pendant necklaces. Our sublime fusion of porcelain medallions and wood bezels awaits those of you who dare to be different.

Introducing familiar motifs in a fresh presentation: Spirals. Celtic knots. Hand prints. Shells. The Earth. Faces. Express your individuality with our sophisticated yet whimsical art jewelry!

Christine loves to carve intricate designs for the porcelain medallions. She engineers them to account for a 13% shrinkage rate. A plaster mold is made from the original. Liquid porcelain is poured into the mold. Each medallion is bisque fired, glazed, and glaze fired in an electric kiln at 2167°F for that luscious, translucent color.

Tom uses a plug cutter and Forstner bit to cut the bezels on a drill press. Each bezel is cut from the end grain of a maple wood blank to ensure a consistent texture and even dye absorption. Final shaping takes place on a lathe using rasps, files, and 3 grits of sandpaper. The bezels are dyed, hand signed, and finished with five coats of lacquer before a final buffing brings out a delicate, satiny smooth finish.

Married for over 20 years, we have found that working together adds a special dimension to our relationship. Mutual trust, respect, and a willingness to innovate have allowed our business to flourish. We invite you to select from our collection.

May these original works of art bring you joy and happiness. Thank you!
