Faux raku, faux ceramic, faux glass

I'm not sure what to call the beads that I've been making (that I wrote about in the latest 
Belle Armoire Jewelry magazine feature) ...
faux raku, faux ceramic, faux glass?
Anyway, I'm in love with the organic, earthy textures
and subtle layers/tones of color.

And because they are built on a paper core they are extremely lightweight and perfect for jewelry.

  Here are some more examples newly listed in the shop: jewelry

Belle Armoire Jewelry mag. news

I'm featured in my favorite jewelry magazine again!

The photographers at Belle Armoire Jewelry magazine do such an amazing job, I am thrilled with how they presented my pieces!
The feature includes some brief explanation of technique and a list of supplies. As usual the magazine is chock full of inspiration from some amazing jewelry artists like Susan A. Ray and Teresa Kiplinger.

Two of these pieces have sold and are already on their way to their new home in Canada.
