These glass cathedral beads from the Czech Republic are the perfect bead if you love pretty vintage style. Cathedral glass beads like this 10×8 garnet lantern bead, are named after the stained glass windows of churches and were first manufactured in the 1950’s. These fancy faceted 10x8mm Czech glass beads have a pointy deco style tip at both ends. They are pressed and cut, in a way which gives them high light refraction and colour saturation. The North Bohemian region, with its centuries-old glass-making traditions, was become the cradle of machine cutting & polishing.
