Two beads are pictured. This listing is for a choice of one. Both of these beads will be fun in the making. The smaller bead has several holes, and I envisioned using hemp cord or wire to make dangles.
These ceramic pendant beads were handmade in my studio. They were first formed from wet clay, carefully dried, fired, glazed, and then fired again to about ~2300 degrees F, or what we call medium fire or cone 6 in ceramic terms.
I photograph beads first from the "front," then with a coin, and then from the "back." Because all of my beads are glazed on all sides, I pay a small price for that - which is often in the form of a small blemish on what I consider the "back." That being said, these blemishes are extremely tiny - though they don't look so in the photos! I use a telephoto lens which magnifies their appearance.
I make every attempt to showcase the beads with accurate color. However, color can vary from device to device. All beads are photographed in daylight. If you are concerned about the weight, please review my finished product listings, which provide the weight in grams.
These beads are strong, but will break with force! They are sturdy enough for daily wear, but they may break if dropped on a hard surface, and they may break if worn during strenuous activity or while sleeping in bed.
