Porcelain Focals
(Grants Pass, Oregon)--Fire Mountain Gems and Beads®, America's Favorite Beading and Jewelry Supply Company®, announces the addition of glazed high-fire porcelain focal components.

This collection of focals is created using an extra-hard porcelain, then fired at approximately 1,300 degrees Celcius for increased durability. A range of styles is included, from realistic flower pendants with a high gloss finish to more casual styles with rippled surfaces and color patterns:
  • Flower Pendants:
    Each flower pendant is hand-formed, hand-glazed and fired to create intricate, three-dimensional flowers that only look fragile. Loops are added to the back of each focal for hanging ease.
  • Delftware-inspired:
    Classic blue-and-white focal components are cut out, given a stringing hole, covered with a decal embellishment and hand-glazed on one side for a smooth surface.
  • Vintage Look:
    Porcelain focal components in four different styles have the handmade look of lower fire pieces. Multi-brown and multi-blue rippled styles feature multiple glazings to create surface pattern, texture and color range. Crackled surfaces add a vintage look to light blue and beige glazes over white along with a slightly chatoyant starburst appearance.
  • Fancy Flats:
    Porcelain focal components come in a range of fancy flat shapes in four distinct styles for fashionable and sturdy pendants.
