Item details

New bead design in black and white with lots of texture! We use black earthenware clay to make these gorgeous beads and add texture to the clay surface with a wooden printing block. After the first firing, white underglaze is painted and then rubbed off so that it only remains in the recessed areas. No two beads will look exactly the same and you'll receive a lovely variety of textured beads.

Earth Butter Studio is in Wellington, a rural farming community about 75kms from Cape Town. My pottery studio is in a cultural centre where I am surrounded by other artists and crafters - a very inspiring place to work in!

Colour: Black / Charcoal White
Design: Textured
Shape: Round/Free form

You will receive:

7 large handmade textured black and white beads of about 22-25mm long and about 12-15mm wide (just under 1 inch long and 0.5 inches wide). See last picture for size reference.

Stringing Holes = approx 2 - 2.5mm

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

Picture 4 - 5 = the process of making beads by hand
Picture 6 = for inspiration only!

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.
