Czech Beads

Pressed Beads

These beads are called "pressed" because the molten glass is put into moulds and pressed to shape then fired in the kiln to anneal them.

Pressed Beads 2 Czech pressed glass beads are available in many sizes from 3mm upwards and can be found in many different shapes from abstract to flowers, leaves and animals. They are available in many colours both transparent and opaque and there are also fancy surface finishes like Aurora Borealis (AB) and metallic and other coloured coatings. The range of available beads taking all these factors into account is enormous.
Druk glass beads is the name for perfectly round and optically-polished beads.
