The Years of Rice and Salt is a term coined by Chinese women in wealthy households, signifying the busiest times of a women's life: raising children, taking care of elderly family members, managing servants, etc.

A set of 18 unique beads I hand shaped out of fine white clay, earthenware or stoneware, textured the surface, dried and fired once. Then I glazed them and fired again at 1020 C. The coin shown in the last photo is slightly more than 2 cm wide.

It contains:
-- 2 charms on high-fire wire loops, reminiscent of chalk pieces, glazed in crackle glaze;
-- 3 smaller charms on wire loops: textured, glazed
-- 1 envelope charm on a loop;
-- 1 slip glazed bead, with rough dark green pattern, glazed;
-- 2 beads with pressed-in fern patterns
-- other white, pale, ivory, light brown, pale pink, speckled beads with organic textures. Some of the beads have crackle finish.
