Ceramic and Porcelain Beads

Ceramic beads are made from a mixture of clay and other chemicals, and then decorated.  There are different qualities of clay and mixing chemicals which lead to varying degrees of hardness, texture and color of the fired product.  There are different types of slips and glazes used to fire in a color or color effect.  Sometimes the fired beads are simply hand-painted.  Othertimes, they have a decal that is glased onto the surface. The nature of the manufacturing and artistic detailing of ceramic beads means that there will be some variation from bead to bead in size, shape and effects.   If you want perfection, ceramic beads are not for you.

This alcove includes several types of ceramic beads, including porcelain beads from China ; large hole ceramic beads, such as the Greek ceramic beads,  useful for stringing on leather and other thick cords .  We will also have ceramic letter beads.  

Also of  interest would be our sections covering  Cloisonne, East Indian Glass, Ethnic Metal, Waxed Cotton and Leather Cords, Tile Beads , and Jewelry Findings .


Sorry, we do not have a Printed Catalog.

NOTE: We do not provide Samples of items




NOTE: The supply and availability of beads is very variable. Please make note of this when you are planning any project! Also MAKE NOTE and REALIZE that the exact color and size of many beads also varies, sometimes considerably, from production lot to production lot. Just because you ordered 100 navy blue oval beads in June, don't assume that when you re-order, that the navy blue color will be exact, or the size will be exact.

Also, don't assume that the same color will still be available when you order next -- even with a basic color like 'black'.

Also in your planning, assume that the variability of size/color/shape in any lot of hand-crafted beads will also have considerable variability.

Don't hesitate, when planning a project, or ordering from us, to ask us questions about supply and availability of beads. We'll do our best to find answers and options for you. This may mean having to modify your design plans somewhat, or for us to find an alternative, though sometimes higher cost, supplier. It may also mean buying your key beads or other parts and findings in larger quantities. At Land of Odds, we are all too familiar with the trials, tribulations and joys of jewelry design. We'll work closely with you.

If you are ordering SEVERAL ITEMS WHICH YOU MUST HAVE "ALL OR NONE", then please email or notify us of this fact when you place your order. If you are trying to spell a particular word with letter beads, please let us know. Normally, we ship what is available, and out-of-stock the rest. We do not typically call or email about what is unavailable, unless specifically requested to do so.

We cannot be responsible for the color of dyed stones.

Listed weights and sizes for cast jewelry and beads pieces are approximate.

Please be aware that the colors of images you see on your screen may differ from the true colors of any item offered for sale. We do our best to see that there is as little distortion from the true colors as possible, but different browsers and different computer graphics hard- and soft-ware do many different things with colors. Even when switching between Netscape, Internet Explorer and AOL, some colors will vary considerably, some will vary a little, and others won't vary at all.
