Bundling Beads


























I've been making clay beads for some time but resisted making any to sell in the Etsy shop..

however several of my customers wanted beads to work in with the pendants they had purchased at the Etsy, Spirited Earth shop and continued to encourage me to get busy soo i gave in...
Now i'm wondering what was wrong with my Noggin' that i didn't do this before..

i love making the beads..and can take a blob of clay and my "high tech"tools..Ha,not

(..a couple of sticks really, plus one secret special little tool) with me when i have to be out of town visiting my aunt or mom..

of course as with all ceramic work there are a ton of steps before getting to the end result..
but it's wonderful to come back from a trip with a big bag of beads ready to fire.

I was just working with a few beads of yours in addition to some of the pendants and I really enjoyed the end results.
There is something uniquely "spirited earth" in the glazes that I have not seen anywhere else. I can't wait to buy more!
