These gorgeous patinaed bird beads have been painted in the Dry Gulch studio and are perfect in jewelry and craft projects. These sweet bird beads have a hole through the center to string onto necklaces and charm bracelets, and they would be adorable on earrings too! This listing is for 10 hand painted bird beads.

These components have been painted by the Dry Gulch gals in our studio in the Ozarks area of Missouri. Adding life to handmade jewelry by painting plain metal components is one of our favorite things to do. Our hand painted components can take up to to 2 days to complete in our studio.

These beads are part of our Ancient Alchemy collection of creative findings and components. Our Ancient Alchemy line looks like it's just been unearthed in an archeological dig with its rich turquoises, red rusts and sea greens! The patinas we use on these pieces take up to 12 hours to work their rusty magic. Our patinas actually create rust and verdigris on the components, so we always seal our pieces with layers of clear matte sealer.

These beads are made of an antique silver plated base metal alloy and have been hand painted with metal-specific paints and patinas. No two beads are ever exactly alike because of their hand painted nature. The back side has also been painted. These beads have been gently distressed for a vintage look and then sealed with a clear matte spray. The matte sealer protects the color and imparts a rustic effect.

These birds are small and well made, they do have a slight weight to them. They are approximately 15mm long and 9mm wide and 4mm thick. The photos in this listing include a ruler so you can see how big the beads are. These beads are center-drilled, the diameter is 1mm. All photos have been taken outdoors using sunlight, but as always, computer and mobile monitors display colors differently.
