Item details

There are different shades of terracotta clay and the terracotta clay we used for these beads is a soft pinkish shade. We use terracotta clay dug from soil deposits in our home town - this is real Earth Butter!

We painted the terracotta beads with white underglazed which we then wiped off the surface of the beads before they went into my pottery kiln for a firing of 1 100 degrees Celsius (2 012 Fahrenheit). The surface is slightly absorbent and the beads are unglazed.

You will receive:
8 Beads in size 18 - 21mm OR
10 Beads in size 14-17mm

Metric Conversion:
25mm = 1 inch
19mm = approx. ¾ inch
12mm = approx. ½ inch

Additional policies

Please be aware that computer monitors differ and the display of colours can vary. Earthbutter beads are handrolled by individuals outside of the studio and bead sizes and bead holes can vary. Each bead is therefore 100% unique and will appeal to those who appreciate honest, handmade and slightly imperfect artisan beads.
