In days of yore, glass beads were used as prized currency. Now, they take a natural part in our creations and wares.
Whether you look for historical replica beads to further perfect your costume, or more modern and fantasy pieces to highlight your everyday outfit, glass offers a versatile and out-of-time look to every kind of ornament.
Glass is one of the oldest known man-made materials. Produced by melting silica from the sand, and mixed with different oxides to harden or colour it, glass can be used in many ways to shape it.
Hot, it can be blown, spun and flameworked, modelled like clay, or cast in moulds.
IN THE WORKSHOP
We use soft (soda lime) glass rods to produce our lampwork beads. We also happen to recycle colored bottles.
