This listing is for a pair of earring beads that are similar to what you see in the images. They are already made and ready to be shipped from the US!
Weight: around 4 grams each
Bead Size: (use for bracelet charms too!) 5/8” or just over 1.5 cm
Note that the turquoise glaze intentionally crackles; it is not a defect. Please view photos carefully before purchasing.
These beads are created by me in my studio, first with porcelain clay, which is formed and dried. After drying any hard edges are cleaned with a sponge and dental tool. They are first fired in the kiln to around 1900 degrees F. Then they are dipped in glaze, dried, and fired again, this time to ~2300 F.
The beads are glazed on the front and back.
