I came to live in Cambodia several years ago from Australia. A year ago I began searching for a new project. It needed to be something creative, fun & able to utilise resources from our local area.

I have been a passionate collector of beads for many years, never thinking one day I would be making them myself.

All the beads are designed by me & hand rolled by a local Khmer family. Each bead is individual, no two being exactly the same. The beads are hand painted & glazed & are twice fired in my gas kiln to temperatures of between 1020 & 1100C. They are incredibly strong.

The item in the photo is the item which will be shipped. If you see something you like & it is already sold please contact me as I can usually make something similar.

All the creations are unique & of my own design. Because the beads are individually painted & hand rolled their perfection lies in their differences. Do not expect each bead on a strand to be identical. It is the imperfections that make them so perfect.

So when you buy beads from CLAYCULT CAMBODIA you are not only getting a piece of beautiful jewellery .. but also something from the heart of this mystic land.

Enjoy …..
