Making Beads Doing the Twist

Making Beads Doing the Twist

Not far too very long ago I came across a bundle of beads deeply concealed in my stash.  I had procured them at the very least 10 a long time back in Freeport, Maine at The Beadin’ Path, a excellent bead store that is no for a longer time in enterprise.
There was a strand of beads that I actually adore nestled in between that prolonged ago buy.

Strand of Vintage Czech Glass Mottled Twist Brown Beads

 I considered I would test to make a established out of ceramic clay.  The tag offers a small  clue on how they may well be created. ( see text less than picture higher than)

I experimented with rolling out some round beads and twisting them but that didn’t work.  Then I received the notion that if they were initial designed into a 3-d disk bead that possibly that might  perform. That seemed to be the response but the twist was more difficult that I experienced believed.  I place my fingers on the glass Czech bead to get an plan of how to I would have to twist them.  It was really uncomfortable as the fingers on every single hand would have to go in the opposite route.  I persevered and the first set of beads I designed is in the picture under.

Due to the fact I did not choose into account that my clay shrinks 12% throughout the drying and firing process, mine are fairly lesser than the unique strand but I am  content to use them in some of my freeform peyote sew work.  I have a bracelet I am functioning on that they would go properly with.


I also created some in blue and white to see how they would look. 

If I make extra of the blue and white beads I believe I will skip the white portion and just have them in blue.    

But the initially set of beads–  I am just ridiculous about the shade and have been trying  it on other parts as properly.

I was rather satisfied with  how the higher than pendant arrived out and astonished how the hues experienced morphed for the duration of the glaze firing.

So I attempted it again on a bigger piece and was more than satisfied with the outcome

For me what is effective when I am building is to abide by my passion on on the other hand circuitous a route it will take me.  In the end it will convey me immediately to my heart and soul.
Thank you for stopping by and looking through my write-up.
