These fancy faceted Czech glass cathedral beads with antiqued bronze metallic foil on the ends. Great for art deco style stringing projects.
Fire Polished beads are glass beads that are faceted by machine. The edges and surface are then given a softer, polished look by placing the beads in hot ovens or over open flames. By virtue of this process, Fire Polished beads are all slightly different from each other; this adds to their charm. Unlike Austrian faceted crystals, Fire Polished beads contain no lead. It is the heat polishing process that gives them their soft glow and brilliance.
Color: Honey Gold with Bronze Ends
Measurements: 8mm along the string. 8mm in diameter. The holes will accommodate wire or cord up to 18 gauge (0.04" / 1mm) thick.
