This bead is made using the millefiori technique used by glass bead makers where every color you see is a different color of clay. All colors and elements were handmade by me, put together in a pattern much like a jelly roll...but way more complicated. I then reduce by hand the pattern, and it becomes longer and smaller. When the cane is sliced it reveals the pattern inside!
This bead is 1 1/8 inches in diameter and is sanded and buffed to a smooth semi polished surface. The pattern is the same on both sides. This pattern was one that I used to make my Ode to Spode Buttons that won 1st place in the Bead and Button competition several years ago. This is the very last of this design.

Shipping & policies
Shipping costs are calculated by Etsy at the current rate. Sometimes there is overages with multiple items. I usually refund part of the shipping if this is the case or bump shipping up to priority. There is tracking that comes with it if you are in the USA. I add insurance if it is over $100.
I accept any major credit card through Direct Check Out. Or PayPal. I also except a check or money order, although when paying with these options I wait to ship until check has been received and cleared, which could delay shipping at least a week.
I have to charge tax for Washington state residents at the rate of 8.6%
I will hold any item on request for 24 hours
Returns & exchanges

If there is a defect in my work, I will repair or replace at no charge.
CARE: I recommend that my handmade buttons be hand washed and air dried for the longest life. All plastic type buttons eventually suffer from heat and impact becoming brittle over time. If you must use a machine turn your garment inside out and use the lowest heat settings.
