Porcelain Beads, one of first types of mankind jewelry beads

Jewelry Beads are used for a variety of purposes. The most common use of jewelry beads is in jewelry making. Porcelain Beads are also used for jewelry makings. Porcelain Beads are our new jewelry products in wholesale beads. Porcelain is also known as kaolin or china clay. Porcelain is dense and has white color that becomes translucent when fired. The finished porcelain beads have excellent smooth surfaces. To make porcelain beads, china clay is fired at high temperatures, generally at 2300 F (1200 C) or even higher temperatures.
Porcelain Beads are becoming very popular for making Porcelain Bead jewelry and also as craft beads. Porcelain Beads (Clay beads) were perhaps among first few types of beads that were made by mankind.
Painted porcelain jewelry, a craze in the later part of the 1800s, retains all its attractive features today although no longer considered rare or too expensive. However, it seems to be only a matter of time before collectors make a rush for them again. At the end of the nineteenth century, pieces of this jewelry beads were typically shaped as small horseshoes or half moon pins worn by women during the late Victorian and Edwardian period. The most attractive items among painted porcelain jewelry were undoubtedly scenic brooches, which can easily be called miniature pieces of art.
