Dark Rose Porcelain Beads, Pink Porcelain Beads, Pink funky beads, artisan beads, flower beads, floral beads, dark pink beads, pink bead set
I formed these three beads and stamped with 2 with a scrolling flower pattern and the other with various daisies and glazed in a dark pink/rose matte glaze.
These beads measure 17, 18, and 19 mm from hole to hole and 19 mm at their widest. The stringing holes measure approx. 2 mm.
--------Inches -vs- Millimeters----------
1 inch = 25 mm
1/2 inch = approx. 12 mm.
I have discovered over time that each batch of beads fires in the kiln differently depending on the season, temperature, and humidity, and barometric pressure.
Each batch of beads I create are unique. I typically work with multiple clay types: a white stoneware, a porcelain, a red clay, and a brown clay and sometimes I mix these up to get new clay bodies.
Each glaze will take on the color of the clay to some degree and so the same glaze will look different on each clay body.
I also tend to mix colors much like a water-colorist (which I used to do before pottery) so the glazes rarely look similar unless the beads are from the same batch.
So if you see a bead which you love, purchase all you can from that batch because that wonderfulness may not ever happen again.
