There's a 3 step process to making these beads. First, the ceramic beads are fired. Then they're dipped in copper and fired again and finally the silver coating is applied. It's a long process but the resulting beads are just gorgeous!
On that same shopping expedition, I found a lovely selection of glass cane beads in shades of pink, orange and red. By now an idea was starting to in my head as to how I might use these metalized ceramic beads. Such stunning beads called for something simple.And this was it: a choker which put the metalized ceramic focal bead on show - simple but eye catching.
This is another piece that is for available for purchase in my Etsy shop. I hope you'll stop on by and check out my other items.... perhaps you'll find something that takes your fancy!
I'm working on some more Friendly Plastic pieces tonight which I'm looking forward to sharing with you later in the week.
