Colored Porcelain Small Sea Shell with Beads Hanging Vessel RKC091
Hand made colored porcelain in blues and browns was used to make this small sea shell multi-purpose hanging vessel. I added glass beads to pick up the colors in the clay and really *BLING* this out! I have a friend using a small shell for her cockatiel, and I have others who have used one of these under a cabinet in the kitchen or bathroom of their tiny home to hold jewelry or other small items - even for air plants!
This piece was made from porcelain clay, with each color mixed by hand by me, and then I pressed it into a plaster mold that I have made from a real sea shell. The piece was then bisque fired to make the first transition from clay to ceramic. Next I put glaze on the piece to provide a non-porous surface for food usage. Then I fired the piece to maturity at cone 6. Absolutely One Of A Kind!
It is suspended from jewelry wire and finished with a silver plated clasp. You can either hang it from a hook ( not included) or simply wrap the wire around a branch or other object and clip the clasp around the wires as shown. About 6" x 6".
Fill with treats or water for your feathered neighbors. Wash with soap now and then to keep clean. Scrub with baking soda for stubborn stains. Don't leave out to freeze in winter with water in it.
My bluebird family loves these! I hang two next to their nest box, and MomBird splashes happily in a larger one while enjoying a handful of dried mealworms from another. I have had these in use in my yard for several years and they are holding up well.
Here is a video of my bluebirds enjoying theirs. Shot through a window screen, so it's not the best quality, but you can see how much use mine get.

My RKMixables line is designed for you to interchange pieces to suit your changing needs. The necklaces terminate in lobster clasps which will connect to each other, but I have planned for you to add a clasp and jumprings to connect more than one piece. The clasp will add another inch or so to the length of the piece, and the jumprings will keep the pieces together, whether you have chosen to twist or braid them or to cascade several lengths.
I can make alterations to many of the jewelry pieces before shipping if you desire. Necklaces can be shortened, and in some cases lengthened. I can also add an extender chain or clasp, and it is possible in many cases to use an "extender" to actually take up some length.
I can change many of the earrings to leverbacks at additional cost (leverbacks are much more expensive than wires) and I can change wires to posts. BUT - I do not have posts in copper yet. I also have some clip-on backs!
I am always happy to discuss making a special piece for you. Please don't hesitate to ask!
Thanks for reading about my policies.
Thanks so much for the beautiful necklace. Great value too.
