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 versatile teardrop beads are top-drilled--attach a triangular jump ring and use as an earring centerpiece or string together for a beautiful necklace project.
Measurements: 9mm long, 6mm wide, and about 5.5mm thick. The holes will accommodate stringing material up to 20 gauge (0.032" / 0.812mm).
