About

Hand Made in Texas Pottery Beads, Pendants, Pots, Coasters

I feel blessed to be able to have a small studio space and create beautiful beads and pendants for other creative people to add their own special touches. I love it when a customer sends me a photo of what they did with my work. The neat thing about pottery is that I am in control of the whole process from designing, making, and firing the pieces. I strive to make quality pieces at an affordable price. All my pieces start out as clay that is dug from Texas soil, I make the beads, the beads dry and then are sanded and fired to cone 04 bisque, they are then glazed, re-fired to cone 06. The beads are then photographed and packaged and listed for sale. I have made many of the tools I use to create my pieces as well as most of my kiln furniture for firing the pieces. My little shop helps to support my family, and I am thankful that I love my work. Grab a glass of sweet ice tea and kick off your boots and enjoy a Captured Moment.

Additional policies and FAQs
POTTERY
My pottery pieces are all lead free, occasionally some glazes will have trace amounts of lead, if this is a concern please let me know and I will check to be sure of a particular glaze that I use on your piece.

I almost always have more in stock than what is listed if you need multiples of a listing please convo me. Special Orders are available, if you have an idea for a pottery piece please convo me. If you see a piece you like but want a different color, just let me know. I love the opportunity for a new design. Please keep in mind that the nature of pottery glaze is that it varies from piece to piece and from kiln load to kiln load, this is the beauty of pottery.

STERLING PLATED PIECES
With most of my sterling pieces the Base metal is Brass. To Silver plate the pieces they go into a nickel bath first then the are plated. This allows the plating to be stronger and last longer. We do meet the UK Standards for Nickel Release on all of our products. Which means that even though they are not 100% nickel free they are in almost all cases safe to wear for people that have nickel allergies. What is touching the individual’s skin is silver, not nickel. Every piece is LEAD FREE.

The NICKEL RELEASE is the the amount of nickel released from a piece of jewelry over a 7 day period of time.

On all special orders the balance is due when placing your order and prices are usually based on a similar piece currently in stock.

Please note: Every item in my shop is not for use by children, and because beads are small they do pose a choking hazard to children. Thanks, Cindy
