Fire polished round beads are made by grinding glass pressed beads and their characteristic high shine is attained by the subsequent fire polishing. We offer these traditional Czech beads in a wide array of colours, surface finishes and sizes. They will stand out, for example, strung on a nylon tigertail or thinner elastic bead cord, or in a looped jewellery. You can also combine them with other beads and so create more intricate sewn or embroidered projects. Thanks to their universal use, fire polished beads should be a permanent staple of every beader’s toolbox.
