Price adjustments
During the past year, and particularly over the past several months, the price of silver has skyrocketed from about $4.50 a year ago to over $8 per ounce at the current market. At Artbeads.com, we hoped that prices would revert back to last year’s levels and have thus held our prices firm even as our manufacturers have been steadily raising their prices. However, with silver now expected to reach $10 per ounce, we regrettably will be raising prices on many of our sterling silver products over the next several weeks. This was not an easy decision for us to make, as we know that many of you are on a tight budget. We hope that you can understand, and we promise that we will lower our prices once silver prices return to more reasonable levels.

Q: What is a fire-polished bead?

A: Fire-polished beads start out as regular glass beads. They are then machine faceted, which leaves sharp facet edges. To smooth them out, they are heated in a kiln or oven until the edges soften. The result is a beautiful, faceted, crystal-like bead. Our fire-polished beads are all made in the Czech republic, which is the most reputable source for glass beads.
