    Porcelain jewelry??

    Like Neil suggests, I'd use colored porcelain for the rings, and forgo glazing them. I wouldn't be too concerned about them firing exactly to the same ring sizes every time, since peoples fingers are often not perfect ring sizes. However, I would extensively test how the rings fire, and thrown vs. cast strength once fully fired. I used to wear hematite rings when I was young, but they would break so easily that I got tired of buying new ones. If you overglaze, I'd apply it as a highlight, rather than over the full surface, so you don't have to worry about stilting. The only porcelain jewelry I make is pendants, and I use colored slip so I don't have to glaze it and lose the detailed surface texture.
