About FulgorineBeads

On Etsy since 2014

I love making beads!

In 2009, while browsing the internet, I stumbled across a page of intricate polymer clay millefiori pendants. I was instantly hooked and wanted to know how such colour and detail was achieved. Fortunately there is a lot of generous polymer clay information on the internet which I began to gobble up.

Here was a material that could combine colour, texture and sculptural possibilities!

I began making custom buttons for a multi-coloured cardigan I was knitting, then Christmas gifts for my family, then birthdays... then my family began asking me to make items as gifts for their friends. Soon I had more beads than I could use...

Now I'm a compulsive bead maker, exploring different beading techniques to feature the beads I make.

All my pieces are individually hand-crafted by me, primarily using polymer clay (although I do enjoy exploring different media including textile and wire, so don't be surprised if you find mixed media).

Polymer clay is a new art medium consisting of particles of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) suspended in plasticizer. When fired in a home oven, the particles fuse solid, resulting in a hard durable substance. The colours are vivid and the surface can be sanded to a smooth finish.
