Learn about our hand rolled clay beads

klaylife - The home of all things handmade by artisans from around the globe.

Best known for our clay bead chandeliers, handmade by a beautiful community in South Africa, we have fast become a hub for 'pieces with purpose' from all corners of the world.

They story behind the chandeliers

Unlike so many products that come off the factory line, ours have a human story. They’re lovingly created by a community of women in South Africa.

Drawing on African heritage and craftsmanship, each clay bead is hand rolled using raw clay. They are then sun dried, kiln fired and dip-dyed and in the case of our lights, masterfully strung onto its unique iron frame.

This hand made process ensures that no two pieces will ever be the same.

Everything we make and source tells a story and most importantly, creates Trade (not Aid) for communities who need the income.

From handmade ceramic lighting, to decor, to jewellery, we hope you find that special piece you've been looking for x
