This listing is for the 7 handmade ceramic beads pictured above. The star in this bead set is the large aqua green raku bead with its beautiful smoke filled surface cracks.

Raku is a fast firing and cooling process whereby glazed pieces are taken out of a kiln when the glaze is molten and placed into sawdust to cool. The result is a distinctive black crackle in the surface of the glaze and smoking of the unlgazed body.

The ceramic beads are individually hand shaped by single moms from a disadvantaged rural community in my hometown near Cape Town, South Africa. I design, glaze and fire the beads in my pottery studio. The last photo is to give you an indication of the size of Earthbutter beads. You can buy the necklace here:
