James Johnson, Indigo Turtle Art, creates original porcelain designs ~ finished jewelry & components. Hand painted one-at-a-time, components are trimmed in either 22K gold or platinum metallic luster glaze. Each piece is fired 3 - 5 times creating an item which is light weight, durable and will never fade or tarnish. All porcelain jewelry items are handcrafted at our studios in Illinois.

Attention jewelry designers, our popular porcelain cabochons & components are perfect for your wire / metal work, bead work or mixed media projects. Ask us about quantity & teacher discounts if you would like to use our cabochons in your designs or in a class you teach. Availability from current stock varies, custom orders welcome! During studio season (December - May) custom orders may take up to 6 weeks to complete.  During show season (June - November) custom orders may take up to 14 weeks to complete. We'd love to collaborate with you!
