The art of painting on porcelain was originated in China, where the genuine, hard white porcelain was invented. It is complex for the Trollbeads artists to make the beads. Our beads are made in fluid porcelain and hereafter they are burned. When they have cooled down, they are glazed for the first time. After glazing, the beads are burned again. Next the beads are painted by hand in the stunning patterns. The beads are then glazed and burned one last time.
Each porcelain bead is handmade and no two hand painted porcelain beads are ever completely alike. This goes for size, coloration, and pattern. Your bead is therefore unique and may have slight variations from the bead pictured.
Store your jewelry separately in small cloth bags, or even better in acid-free, airtight plastic bags or boxes.
