Swift Creek Rattle Bead Necklace
Item: SWFTRAT

Swift Creek Rattle Bead Necklace  This necklace features one of my new Swift Creek design rattle beads.  These beads are made using the designs found on the ancient woodland period Swift Creek pottery.  The beads are made using the same techniques as the ancient potters used to make their pottery.  See more information on the Swift Creek Potters on my information page. (link will open in a new window so you can have a look without leaving here) 

On the back of the bead I have stamped just one impression of the stamp that the design on the front of the bead was made from so you can see the whole design in one place not overlapped.  The bead has tiny clay balls inside which create a nice rattle sound when the bead is shaken.

The Necklace also featured handmade hammered copper squiggles.  These are bent, hammered, drilled and patina'd.  The necklace is then assembled using copper wire to link it all together.  It is fastened with a copper toggle clasp.

Size: Rattle bead is 2 inches in diameter.  It is 6.5 inches from the top of the rattle to the bottom of the dangles.  The copper and beaded chain is 20 inches long.
