Peruvian ceramic beads
Famous worldwide with designs so intricate that many of my customers find it hard to believe that they have actually been HAND PAINTED.
Sadly production of these wonderful beads is not as productive as they once were 20 years ago. Largely due to the original clay source high in the Andes region of Pisac in the Urubamba valley started to dry up. other reasons include the beads became more difficult to obtain as the more skilled artist moved on to other professional areas, they were replaced with other artist however they could not match the amazing detail and patience that the original artist had and so the beads became less popular.
The detail in many of etnico’s beads is exceptional and have been painted by the veteran artist from days gone by I am sure you will not find more detailed beads on the market today.
