Hollow copper-based cloisonné beads have lovely double-sided floral and butterfly accents. Cloisonné is a centuries-old technique that requires skilled artisans to arrange dozens of tiny cells on a copper or brass surface and layer by layer, fill-in the cells with a durable colored enamel, then fire to finish. Due to the handcrafted nature of the beads, size, shape and colors may vary.
Created by skilled artisans, each cloisonné bead can take up to four hours to produce. Dozens of tiny cells are arranged on the bead's surface, filled with enamel color, and fired. Then each bead is polished, revealing intricate and beautiful designs. Sizes, shapes and colors may vary with handcrafted items.
