About Our Products

What are they made of?
Our beads are made from a low-fire polymer art clay. We custom mix our pigments to make beautiful colors that do not fade or wash off. The colors and patterns you see are permanently fused within the beads and the beads are very durable.

How are they made?
We create our beads using an ancient Venetian glass technique known as millefiore or "a thousand flowers." Each Snazzy Bead is hand crafted by first combining many different canes of colored clay. The canes form logs of complex patterns. The logs are repeatedly manipulated and reduced until reaching the desired size. Thin slices from the logs are placed on solid clay cores and then hand rolled to form individual beads. After curing in low fire ovens, these little works of art are ready to enjoy.

Then what happens?
All of our jewelry is designed and assembled in the USA. It is our goal to try and keep as much of our business linked to the community as possible. We partner with a local not for profit organization that employs people with disabilities to string, assemble and package all of our jewelry. You can learn more about their mission statement at

And other materials?
At Snazzy Beads, we care about your health and understand many people have sensitive skin. Our accent beads and findings use only materials that are nickel and lead free . Our ear wires are made of quality sterling silver.

Where’s the catch?
No catch - our Polymer Clay Necklaces and Polymer Clay Bracelets are strung on high quality elastic cord. No clasps to fuss with or reading glasses to fetch. Just pop it over your head, or slip one on your wrist and you're ready to go.

What about sizing?
Our Ball Polymer Clay Bracelets come in 3 sizes: 10mm are 6 ½ - 7” in diameter 12mm are 7-71/2” in diameter 15mm are 71/2” – 73/4” in diameter Our Ball Polymer Clay Necklaces come in 2 sizes: 10mm are approx 19” long 15mm are approx 22” long Our Oval Polymer Clay Bracelets are 7-7 12” in diameter Our Oval Polymer Clay Necklaces are approx 24”long

How about maintenance?
Polymer clay is a strong material. Maintenance should be minimal. If you pick up a little soil, or spill something on your beads, just take a damp sponge and a little soap or dishwashing liquid and warm water to wash them off.
