Last Tuesday I posted some "green" ceramic raku cubes from Joann, Etc. They actually seemed a little more turquoise, but were really cool and interesting.
I also bought a strand of this much larger brown cube because I liked the variations and watery look of the colors.
At a glance, the green/turquoise raku bead seemed to be the same bead as this one, but in a different color.
The tag on this strand from Blue Moon Beads reads 7 in ceramic bead strand (STR BD CERA 7" SQ DK BRN). There isn't any mention of "raku".
What do you think? They seem so similar, I would be surprised if this was not a raku bead, but I honestly don't know how to tell the difference.
What I DO KNOW is that these are very earthy, yet sophisticated at the same time and that is very cool!
