In my spare time I’ve been making ceramic beads. These are some of the latest – un fired as yet so the colours will be brighter when finished. I make them by rolling soft coloured clay around a paintbrush handle. My inspiration came from a necklace I saw at Oriel Myrddin made by Lovehate.
I’m particularly excited about the composite ones. (But also nervous that they will fall apart in the kiln). It’s really hard to cut at ninety degrees (a bit like slicing a loaf of bread neatly but more so) which is why some of them have wiggles – I decided to go with it and consider it a positive quality!
