Haitian Handmade Clay Beads + Leather + Brass

Our clay beads are hand rolled, making each one unique and a small piece of art. The clay is dug by hand from natural deposits in Haiti’s central plateau. The raw clay is then broken into a fine powder and the impurities are sifted out.  The powdered clay is mixed with water and then dried on a plater to remove excess moisture. Skilled artisans roll these clay beads in a variety of sizes and shapes, then each piece is hand-painted with glaze. The finished pieces are fired in a kiln which transforms the raw clay to permanent ceramic, and the raw glazes to brightly-colored glass. Each piece is unique and one of a kind.
