Pendant of the Day - by MMCOLLINS

Personalized Multi Dot Square Pendant

Our pendant of the day comes to us from MMCOLLINS. This adorable pendant is a handmade, hand-painted ceramic cutie. The colors are so bright and full of energy. Note the little, colorful beads that make up the bail! Of course you can get one customized with the letters of your choice.  

What makes this pendant different is that it is not wood and does not use a printed image. Instead it is all handmade and hand painted setting it apart from other handmade pendants.

The word "ceramics" comes from the Greek keramikos (κεραμικος), meaning "pottery", which in turn comes from keramos (κεραμος), meaning "potter's clay." Most traditional ceramic products were made from clay (or clay mixed with other materials), shaped and subjected to heat, and tableware and decorative ceramics are generally still made this way. In modern ceramic engineering usage, ceramics is the art and science of making objects from inorganic, non-metallic materials by the action of heat. It excludes glass and mosaic made from glass tesserae.

There is a long history of ceramic art in almost all developed cultures, and often ceramic objects are all the artistic evidence left from vanished cultures, like that of the Nok in Africa over 2,000 years ago. Cultures especially noted for fine ceramics include the Chinese, Cretan, Greek, Persian, Mayan, Japanese, and Korean cultures, as well as the modern Western cultures. ~ From Wikipedia!
