JLK Jewelry: Turning Mud Into Gemstones

......"In addition to the pottery stones, my work incorporates natural stones and gems and handmade pottery beads. The pottery stones are created by hand, bisque fired, and then glazes are layered to create pieces full of depth and imagination. The glazes are a product of the earth and have varying melting points that create these wonderful stones and therefore blend beautifully with the semi-precious stones used. In mixing the glazes, created by Pam Owens at Jugtown, i have found that I can create some of the randomness found in nature and my beautiful stones and gems."
