This bead was handformed using a mold I made of from my own hand sculped model of dragonflies. The design is delicately raised from the surface and is finished in a two stage patina with a hand polished finish. The bead is hollow and the pattern wraps around the bead.The bead measures about 1/2" (13 mm) by 1" (24 mm) and is about 1/4" (6 mm) thick.

Note: This is for ONE bead. Yours may vary slightly from those pictured because each one of these is handmade, one at a time.

Note on the process:

These charms are made from metal clay, which isn’t really clay at all. It’s a mixture of tiny particles of bronze that are bound together to make a plastic substance that is moldable. Once fired, the result is a pure bronze piece.

I make all of my own molds, sometimes from vintage pieces but usually from my own artwork. Each piece is formed by hand one at a time. Once dry, they are sanded and filed smooth, then kiln fired overnight. They are then wire brushed, tumble polished, given a patina and then polished again. As handmade pieces each will vary slightly. That’s part of the beauty and uniqueness of these pieces. Almost certainly, you will find my fingerprints on the back. A little maker’s mark.

Thanks for looking!
