Czech glass dagger beads with laser etched design.
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. The surface of the beads feature an iridescent finish with a laser etched insect wing design.
