Blue Terracotta Clay Bead
These beads seem to be made from a terracotta clay, and then painted a beautiful blue (would look great with denim!), with their markings painted white as the adornment. Kind of beautiful in their imperfection.
The beads have 4 dots forming 2 lines lengthwise, and 1 solid line around each end. In the two sections between the lengthwise lines, there is a type of starburst pattern. Each bead weighs 2-3 grams each.
Being handmade there is a lot of variation in the sizing and shapes. We have taken photos in front of a ruler, as well as alone, to try and show the approximate sizing of the beads.
Due to the huge variation, we won't measure proportions, sizes or hole sizes here. Please refer to the photos for that kind of information.
These beads are from a collection of bisque fired (no glaze) terracotta/clay/ceramic. There are a lot of definitions of the way these beads are made, and if you are interested, have a google about them and gather information. They are amazing beads to find out about!
We can't be certain of their exact information, rather we are giving suggestions of what these beads are, and where they are from, how they are made etc, from information gathered from our general observations over the last many years in the bead trade.
We will attempt to give you beads that all look similar for each pack that you buy.
