This texture was made by sticking each bead multiple times with a very small coffee straw. I added bead caps to these, too.
The next step was to glaze these black, wipe them down so that the black stayed in the recesses. Then I glazed with a soft speckled pink.
This is also a style of bead that was in Beads 2011. I’m trying to get some of these in stock in case anyone would like some. I still have a lot of styles to glaze, but they are all bisque fired and ready to glaze at this point.
