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 smooth, heart-shaped beads have a beautifully soft reflective quality.
Measurements: 8.5 x 7.5mm, 4mm thick. The strand holes are approximately 1mm in diameter.
