Clay Dings, Bronze Dings, and Copper Dings

In a combination of various design tracks I have been developing - a recent collaboration with Genea of Geneabeads along with research into tribal bead styles, and my own work in a bead style I created called "Ancient Relics", I developed a bead style I am calling "Clay Dings" (with Genea's blessing, I chose the name in homage to her famous "Wing Dings").

My first round were created in stoneware and black raven clay. Then I followed up with this design in copper and bronze clay. Here's a sneak peak...

Look for these and other Clay and Metal Dings in the coming weeks in my shop, including Copper Dings and Bronze Dings with color patina!
