Bottle Kiln in Sage Floral Necklace
Bottle Kiln in Sage Floral Necklace featuring a hand painted wooden charm on either gold or silver plated chain.
Bottle Kiln in Sage Floral Necklace
Floral patterns are something I love and following the love for the pale floral pattern, I designed a couple of bold floral designs including this bottle kiln in sage floral with lots of gorgeous flowers. This pattern is on a wooden bottle kiln/ bottle oven shape which represents the wonderful history of Stoke-on-Trent.
All of my ancestors worked within the pottery industry. My Great-Aunt Nellie worked until she retired at the wonderful Wedgwood. When she retired as a Paintress, Wedgwood allowed her to decorate a plate which she was then gifted. My Mum still has the plate today.
The necklace is 16 inches in length with a 2 inch extension chain and a lobster clasp and you can choose from either gold or silver plated. The necklace comes in a pink presentation box too.
This necklace is made from wood and then hand painted with a light grey base and leaf detail featuring metallic bronze, dusky pink and sage with black outlining. As they’re made from high quality wood, the autumn leaves dangles are lightweight and therefore easy to wear.
The pieces are hand painted on both sides and then coated in a protective layer of resin which provides that gorgeous clear sheen too. The last photo shows what the necklace looks like when worn.
The matching earrings can be found here.

About the Kilns
There was once approximately 2000 bottle kilns in Stoke-on-Trent. Now only 47 remain.
All of my wonderful Ancestors worked within the pottery industry and my grand-father was a Cod Placer. This meant he was in charge of filling the bottle kilns up with the pottery ready to be fired.
As they were paid for each piece they made successfully, my Grand-father had to make sure each one was placed correctly to ensure it fired correctly.
My Grand-father passed away when I was very young. I would have loved to have spoken to him about his time as a Cod Placer.
