Etsy, which I love by the way, is continually making changes, upgrades, etc. to make their site easier to navigate around and certainly, easier to list on. One thing that the folks at Etsy have little control over is the "tags" that people use to promote their own shops. My complaint is this..... If it IS NOT a handmade supply then don't use the tag. Etsy allows commercial supply sales, which is not my complaint, but the sellers should list them as commercial to help out those of us who create handmade supplies. People that are new to handmade beads don't always know the difference at first and listing commercial beads amongst those who create their own beads does not help those of us who are creating one bead at a time. With that said, here are some handmade ceramic beads from some of the members of beads-of-clay.
|Marsha Neal Studio|
|Lisa Peters Art|
|Joan Miller Porcelain|
|Artisan Beads Plus|
If you are interested in more work by the ceramic bead artists listed above, the links are listed in the same order as the pictures.
