Bead Table Wednesday New Stoneware Beads


This Wednesday I added this picture of my new stoneware beads to the Bead Table Wednesday Flickr! Group.  I have been having a great time exploring stoneware ceramic clay finishes.  On my table are beads glazed with a Cone6 Coyote Glaze ( those are the slightly shiny ones) and the teal stained and tumbled finished disk beads.  I had to mix two stain colors to get this color since I am out of my favorite teal stain and can't seem to find it anywhere.  I just love how these colors go with that Ornamentea brass chain in the background.  I am hoping to try out some more Coyote glazes on beads tomorrow with my button and glazing buddy Cait Throop ( BarefootWeaver).  We are having such fun discovering the range of colors possible with these incredible glazes.

  4. What a great little puddle of beads. I would like to rush right into that creativity and splash around a bit! I think the colors are beautiful together, so soothing and evoking of the coming spring. Enjoy the day!
