Glazed Bisque Jewelry Sets
Here are two examples of some of my bisque beads that I embellished with ceramic glaze and popped back in the kiln. Now I have two wonderful bead sets I can use to create a couple of one-of-a-kind beaded necklaces. I’ll probably used waxed linen to make create a macrame necklace using these glazed bead sets.
