These innovative TOHO™ hybrids are the result of a combined effort between the Japanese TOHO™ bead makers and glass bead producers from the Czech Republic. After these beads were created in Japan they were sent to the Czech Republic where they were given traditional Czech glass finishes. The result is a unique and brilliant touch to a classic bead. The consistency of color and size makes these beads perfect for weaving, looming and stringing. Mix these hybrids with their complimentary fire-polished beads or freshwater pearls for stunning results full of vibrant color and texture.
