Iolite & Amethyst Amphora Necklace

Blue Amphora Necklace with Iolite and Amethyst Chain
The amphora in this necklace was made using PMC slip, paper, clay and syringe. A form was created from wood clay. The form was then covered with about 8 layers of PMC slip. Handles were added with PMC clay. Scraps of PMC paper were applied to the amphora and the decoration was completed with PMC syringe. After firing, the amphora was patinated with liver of sulphur to achieve the bluish tone.
To complement the blue tones in the amphora i created 2 wire wrapped chains. The first chain consists of small faceted iolite beads. The second chain combines iolite with the purple of amethyst.
