New Beads

These came out of the kiln yesterday and I plan to list them later this week on Etsy.

These are nugget beads, each one unique with various textures combined with sprigs. 

I am particularly drawn to the lavender bead at the bottom left.  I did not think that texture would come out that lovely. 

I also quite like the yellow texture, too.  I'd like to try that texture in different colors (maybe a lavender?).

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Oh, Natalie, these are superb! I really like the red and brown ones and that yellow one in the middle is to die for. You are good! If I buy myself a kiln, do you think I could pull stuff like that out of it?

  2. I totally think you could pull stuff like this out of it.

    If you join the Beads of Clay yahoo group (beadsofclay.org) you will have access to all the archives where we all spill our secret bead making love.

    I started out wanting to make beads for my own jewelry and then I decided I liked making beads way better than I liked making the jewelry, so brace yourself. If you end up making beads there may be no way back to sanity. It's more fun though, then one can ever imagine.
