These 8mm turquoise glass cathedral beads from the Czech Republic are the perfect bead if you love to add a boho feel to your jewellery making designs. The North Bohemian region, with its centuries-old glass-making traditions, has become the cradle of machine cutting & polishing. Cathedral glass beads are named after the stained glass windows of churches and were first manufactured in the 1950’s. They are pressed and cut, in a way which gives them high light refraction and colour saturation.
The speckled stone finish which “caps” the bead at either end gives it a boho tribal feel. The finish is known as “picasso”.
