A set of artisan ceramic beads in coral, turquoise, copper and gold - each one of a kind - combine them to create one beautiful piece, or use them individually in many pieces - you are the creator!
The price is for all 6 pieces.
I created them with jewelry projects in mind...but you could also use them in mosaic or embroidery projects.
Made from porcelain clay, I hand sculpt, texture and paint each of these pieces on both sides. Each one has a unique texture, created by impressing the clay with lace, sea coral, stamps and other objects from my large collection of texturing tools.
After firing them in my electric kiln, I hand paint each one on both sides, with many layers of acrylic paints - brushing on, wiping off, and brushing more on over and over until I get a patina and palette I like. This process never allows me to do the same exact thing twice - too many steps, and too much serendipity involved! Finally, I seal each piece with a clear, protective coat in a satin finish.
They have a very organic look and feel - wonderful focal beads for your jewelry projects. Or use them in conjunction with stones, metal and other pieces to make your own amazing creations.
DIMENSIONS:They range in size from approx 25mm wide and 40 mm. Some have one hole, others have 2 holes - about 1-2mm in diameter.
Once you have created your jewelry, please be sure to inform your customers that these beads should not be worn while swimming or bathing!
COLOR: I do my best to photograph all my work so that the colors are accurate. But monitors don't all show colors the same way. Please allow for slight variation.
