The image for each Focal Art Bead is the actual item you will receive. Once an item is purchased, a new unique focal bead will be posted in its place. While I may in some cases repeat a design, this will be the exception.
Clicking on "Buy Now" will take you to the ShadesofClay shopping cart page. You will be given an opportunity on that page to "Continue Shopping" if you wish. Without selecting an item, you can Return to the ShadesofClay Shopping Cart here.
The focal beads are made from polymer clay so they are very lightweight, comfortable to wear and inexpensive to ship. They are embellished with beads & buttons.
All textures used in the focal beads are my original designs. Those featuring textures from my rubber stamp collection are noted in the descriptive text.
If you are looking for Focals to use with the bead embroidery technique, look for ones that have a channel in the back rather than a hole for jump rings. As well there are some focals designed specifically for bead embroidery with no holes or channels. Or contact me about a custom order. Please see my Customer Gallery page for beautiful examples of bead embroidery work.
Please note that the colours shown on your screen may be slightly different from the actual colour.
