Fireclay stones – necklace

In my youth, I helped my father in his workshop to extract gold from the bottom of a fireclay glass melting pot. The leftover glass was used to make glass powder. The pan was then broken into pieces and crushed to dust. This dust was to extract grains of pure gold. I used the dust left over from the pan to make a necklace. Inside is glass powder. There are gold grains on one piece of the necklace.
