This is the second in the Symbol Bead Series. The Tide Pool Treasures beads feature a relief of sea life - starfish, barnacles, seaweed, seahorses, shells, rocks, etc. The polymer clay bead core is hand-formed and then individual parts are created from molds and overlapped and smoothed onto the core and baked. Each one is uniqe and different. The bead is then antiqued, sanded, hand-colored with a special watercolor crayon, painted and sealed with a soft-touch varnish for a beautiful matte finish.
ONE FOCAL BEAD:
SIZE: approximately 1 1/2" long and 1/2" wide (each will vary)
Pictures show the same two beads from all sides.
TWO EARRING BEADS:

NOTE: All Simple Truths are made to order. Expect variations from the pictures. That is part of their charm!
