Faceted - Large
Faceted Fire Polished Czech Glass Beads (8mm and larger) - All of the beads on this page were completely handcrafted of glass in the Czech Republic. The quality is superior. Some of this amazing glass is as much as 100 years old. Be sure to read all descriptions thoroughly; note the bead size, and bead count. Fire polished beads are produced by melting the surfaces of pressed beads in an extremely hot oven. The pressed beads are faceted prior to heating: round pressed beads (druks) are placed on a pronged board and inserted into a faceting machine where the beads are angled onto a grinding wheel until all sides are faceted.
