Czech pressed glass beads are manufactured by heating a rod of glass until molten and pressing into molds where it is stamped and holes are pierced. The beads are then rolled in hot sand to soften seam lines and remove flashing.
These dagger shaped beads are side-drilled at the top and will look great on necklaces and bracelets.
Measurements: 10mm long, 3mm wide, 3mm thick. The holes will accommodate thread or wire up to 22 gauge (.025" / .64mm) thick.
