Lightweight Resin Figure Beads - Though they often look like glass, resin beads are very lightweight. Many of our resin beads were handmade in Java, Indonesia. These resin beads are produced by mixing liquid resin with a hardener and color, they are then poured into molds or onto sheets. The resulting bead is then hand-shaped, sanded and drilled. These beads are lightweight, durable, non-toxic and colorfast. They look like glass beads, and most have a frosted glass appearance, though some have a glossy or matte appearance.
