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 flash.
These dagger shaped beads are side-drilled at the top. The surface features an etched texture.
Color: Etched Crystal Full Labrador (metallic silver).
Measurements: 16mm long, 5mm wide at the widest point, 3.5mm thick at thickest point. The hole is less than 1mm in diameter.
