Why Haitian clay beads?
Each Haitian Clay Bead is uniquely hand-rolled. It uses the same raw clay that extremely poor families in Haiti, especially those living in the slums will mix with water, oil and salt to create “mud pies”. These “mud pies” are eaten by adults and children who has no food to eat. The artisans in Haiti are taking the same clay and transforming them into these beautiful jewelry, creating sustainable jobs and feeding their families.
How are clay beads made?
Our Haitian clay is dug by hand from natural deposits in Haiti’s central plateau. The raw clay is broken into a fine powder and impurities are sifted out. The powdered clay is mixed with water and then dried on plater to remove excess moisture. Skilled artisans roll clay beads in a variety of sizes and shapes for jewelry. Each piece is hand-painted with glaze in a variety of colors & patterns. The finished pieces are fired in our kilns which transforms the raw clay to permanent ceramic, and the raw glazes to brightly-colored glass. Each piece is unique and one of a kind.
