11 piece Artisan Bead Set
stone greys blues greens goldens and patinas
Imprints and derived designs from ammonite, starfish, sea urchin, stones and fossils found on my wanderings with my faithful hound amongst the wonderful landscapes of the isle of skye, which is always a time of joy and inspiration.
An eclectic mix in shapes..cap beads, toothy, discs, seed and rectangular beads..
I hand shaped imprinted and carved these stoneware and earthenware clays
then fired it first to 1000 degrees celcius then a second time to 1260 degrees celcius.
Then gilders waxed in successive layers,
burnished polished and cold glazed each and every bead.
Please look at foto5 for scale and double check your measurements.
Of late I have been making jewelry and beads
in clay stone bone
leather shell glass
metal wood wool
hemp linen cotton
and any thing else i can lay my fiddling hands on.
I am very excited,
those around me laugh..
I love to endlessly arrange them into collections or rows.
I rub paint or gilders wax into the carved grooves then rub it all off and do this over and over with different colours till it feels right and alive and like 'it's always been there'.
Use together or seperate in jewelry or a natural fibre sewing, felting, knitting piece..
or on their own in a little stack on a shelf..
