STORY:
"Lantern Beads" were inspired by strings of Japanese lanterns. I was really inspired by not only the beautiful, vibrant colors, but also the way the lights/candles made the colors of the lantern seem to sparkle and flicker.

Lantern beads are hand-made, from start to finish. Every single bead is individually hand-formed from well-conditioned polymer clay and properly cured. After being sanded down to a smooth finish, each bead is hand painted using dyes, watercolors, and inks (and a tiny paintbrush!), texture stamped with a black indelible ink, and then is sealed with high-gloss Varathane, which provides a durable and weather-resistant finish.

Each bead is a true labor of love and consists of hours of work, and is one-of-a-kind.
