Handmade Czech Aventurine Glass Bead Square 12mm Lilac
These square 12mm lilac lampwork glass beads are handmade in the Czech Republic. They are worked over a flame which is supplied by natural gas to generate the heat required to melt the glass. The process in which they are made is the
same today as it was hundreds of years ago. The beads have a border which is decorated by “painting” trails of molten glass from smaller canes to
create unique pieces of art using gold stone (aventurine, which is a
glass paste composed of copper powder) which gives a
shimmering or inner sparkle appearance to the beads.
Whether you are a novice or experienced designer their beauty makes them a great choice for the focal point in your jewellery, as an accent in a necklace or stunning earrings.
