These unique Terra Cotta Clay Beads are made by craftswomen from a region in Northeastern Thailand, often referred to as Esarn. Most villagers in this region are incredibly adept at various utilitarian and decorative arts and, obviously, some are very talented with Clay. Terra Cotta Clay Bead making is part of a tradition spanning over 600 years.

Each Bead is crafted by hand, one piece at a time, from native clay, then fired in back-yard kilns. These Beads are purchased directly from the artisan or group that made them. All pieces will vary slightly in color, shape and size. If you look closely at each bead, you may be able to see the fingerprints from the hands of the actual artist.

Customer Reviews
So happy to have these again!
As pictured, these are a natural brown with a slightly rough ceramic texture. The semi-rondelle shape is attractive and somewhat unusual. I had these (or very similar beads) in the past, and paired them with highly polished Red Jasper -- a wonderful contrast in color and texture. As my supply dwindled, I searched for more, and was sad to find they seemed to be a thing of the past. Delighted to find them again!!
