ARTISAN HANDMADE CERAMIC BEADS: When creating handmade ceramic beads, an artisan bead, I start by using a mid fire clay. Pottery clay typically falls into three categories: high fire, mid fire and low fire. I started creating my own ceramic beads in 2008 using a low fire clay. Although that offered a variety of options in terms of bright colors, I found that chipping around the hole of the ceramic bead happened too often. I graduated to a mid fire clay for most of my porcelain and stoneware beads. I have included a sampling of my pottery beads. Check out my Etsy shop for the most recent listings.

At my shop Artisan Beads Plus, you will find all quality one-of-a-kind beads and jewelry. The handcrafted ceramic beads seen here are formed from porcelain clay or stoneware clay and fired twice in an electric kiln up to 2200 degrees fahrenheit. My handmade artisan pottery beads are incredibly durable and will add a unique look to your handmade jewelry.
