You guessed it! Very good! Those BIG O's are just like the little balls that you will start out with when you make ceramic beads using this little tutorial.
Okay, joking aside, periodically, I will do my posts about what goes into making my handmade ceramic beads, pendants, components, etc. If you are beadmaker using whatever medium that you love and you have a tutorial that you would like to share on our blog, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I think the more we share about the process, the more there will be a greater understanding about what goes into creating handmade. This also goes for those of you who have completed jewelry made with all handmade components.... The more the merrier, I've always heard!
This tutorial is one that I actually made for Kelli Pope quite some time ago. It seemed like the right time to take it back out and share it on our blog. Some of the information that I have in this [no longer sanding because of dust] really deserves more attention than
just dust. Clay has particles in it called silica. If inhaled for long periods of time it will create serious health risks. If you are interested in making ceramic beads, please check out the Beads of Clay website to learn more about safety.
Here is the basic method that I used when I create beads.

I will work on another tutorial about what comes next...
Hey, if I dig far enough into my computer,
I might already have one!!
