New Press Releases
(Grants Pass, Oregon)--Fire Mountain Gems and Beads®, America's Favorite Beading and Jewelry Supply Company®, introduces a new line of hand-crafted ceramic.
This new line of ceramic beads features more than two dozen diverse animal shapes, both domestic and exotic. Selection includes cat, dolphin, llama, parrot, sheep and many more. Football, baseball, volleyball and tube shapes are also included in the new line. All beads are intricately hand-painted by native Peruvian artisans, supporting their economy and traditional lifestyle.
First, the artists add the main body color to each individual bead, creating a variety of colors and tones. Then each accent, spiral and fine detail is painted onto the tiny beads by hand.
Here's one of the indigenous artists who create our Peruvian ceramic beads. She's adding layers of glaze to the beads, which are then fired in a kiln, resulting in brilliant colors and patterns.
Known for exceptional customer service, Fire Mountain Gems and Beads has been the one-stop shop for jewelry-making wholesalers, retailers and designer-artists for over 39 years. The diverse product selection offers more than 116,000 hot jewelry-making supplies.
