LEHB:  LIMITED EDITION 
HANDMADE BEADS SERIES
A very special collection from the hands of our friend, Karen Lewis who has mastered the art of "new Clay". Very very strong. See collection of her beads no two alike, never to be repeated. 
+
"SPIRITED BEADS"
We quickly sell every rosary using Klew beads. California bead artist Karen Lewis of "SPIRITED BEADS" or "KLEW EXPRESSIONS" She is one of my very very favorite bead designers and a dear friend.  She has truly mastered the art of 'New Clay' in her beadmaking and every time I see her work, it is as if each one was created by hands from above. Each bead is truly a work of art, no two alike, never to be repeated ... a spirited bead, perfect for a rosary. Very very durable becoming more beautiful with age.

NEVER TO BE REPEATED
...  because each bead is in series depending on the colors chosen for the cane she designs.  What is a cane?  Think of cinnamon buns and how they are layered, rolled  and cut to form the spiral design. A very simple explanation of a very intricate art form. Her designs are never ending and no two are exactly alike. Every color you see is another piece of fired clay, noting painted on. 
+
one of a kind, never to be repeated

 +
ABOUT HER WORK, SHE SHARES ...
About her work, she shares, 'Most Klew bead [ shape ] categories and cabochons will always be in production although the cane design, colors, and application will vary.  At most, only a few dozen of each style are made at a time before the featured canes are used up. There is no way the exact design can be repeated again, like fingerprints and snowflakes - one of a kind."
