|A selection of "indiependants" using kaleidoscope beads.|
I said: (paraphrasing) Most of Boston Baked Beads jewelry is created with “canes”. I make canes by methodically combining colors of clay to create a log that contains the same pattern throughout. I reduce the cane and slice it putting the pieces together like a puzzle to establish a pattern. I apply the sheet of clay like a veneer. The pieces are baked in a conventional oven 'til they're cured. Then I sand and polish everything to a high sheen to come up with the finished work.
She said: Ok. And then do you hand paint of all of these?
