These traditionally made beads are from the Czech Republic. These beads are shaped and faceted while hot, and then "firepolished" (heated with a flame) to smooth them. They come in a huge variety of shapes and sizes and colours and finishes - from classic faceted rounds to more intrique and interesting cuts - and an enormous variety of colours and finishes.
You can use them as the main item, or as accents for your other beads. Combine them with stone or metal, or use them by themselves. These are a classic that never gets old!
