Paintbrush Texture

I used a grape purple underglaze to bring out this texture. It's kind of a strange shape so I thought I would explain where it came from.  I had a couple of very old paintbrushes and the bristles finally fell out. I was left with these oval empty shapes on a stick. I got to thinking they might be fun to play with.

This is what I ended up doing, pressing them into this round bead. If you really really like it, ask me and I'll make more.  Of course, it won't be exactly the same, but I can make it in a bunch of different colors. Just let me know what you'd like and I'll do my best to accommodate. 

This bead is approx. 15 mm from hole to hole and is made from a very white Leguna clay named 'frost'.
