Item details

Size: 13mm diameter

Hole:will take 1.8mm cord, but not a full 2mm.

A clay bead is formed and fired in a kiln. A coating of copper is applied to the clay base, then the bead is fired again. Finally a third layer of metal is applied, such as gold, silver or more copper , and the beads are kiln fired for a final time. This fuses the metal to the bead and makes the coating exceptionally hard-wearing. I am told that the beads are almost impossible to break.

Many of the beads that I currently stock in this section have large holes suitable for stringing on cord and leather thong. Naturally if they are placed next to an abrasive bead such as glass, some wearing will occur at the point of contact, but I have never seen the coating wear off next the skin unlike electroplated beads. They do tarnish like any silver, but polish up well using a soft silver cleaning cloth.
