Barrel-shaped beads, handmade in the United States, of high-fired porcelain or stoneware. The color is throughout the clay body and no glaze is used. Glossy beads have been tumbled to achieve the shiny or satiny finish. Barrel beads are fatter than “skinny barrel” beads, but where some beads seem to fit into both categories due to borderline sizing, they will be listed in both categories. Barrel beads work beautifully on thick cording, macrame’ designs, knotted work, used in basketry, and anywhere else needing a beautiful focal.
