Glass making in the Czech Republic is an age old cottage industry. These glass beads are still made in small quantities by hand. We work with the finest vendors and have the most consistent, beautiful glass beads available. Due to the way the glass is made, there may be slight color variation from one bead batch to the next. Whether you are making necklaces, bracelets, earrings or simply embellishing household accessories, these high-quality Czech gem-shape beads are sure to impress.
