Swift Creek Rattle Bead Necklace -Porcelain  This necklace features one of my new Swift Creek design rattle beads made in porcelain.  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.  This rattle bead was antiqued with underglaze to highlight the designs.

The rattle bead is strung on a hand made hammered red brass chain.  The hammered links were torched to produce subtle colors and sealed with paste wax to preserve the colors.

Size: Rattle bead is 2 inches in diameter.  The  hammered red brass chain is 20 inches long.
