Bead Making

Glass beads can be made in various ways. The beads illustrated below are blown using a naked flame, using coloured rods, streamers and frits.

Glass beads can be pressed, drawn or formed over a mandrill. Glass beads have been made by the ancient societies as one of the first manufactured decorative items. Glass beads have been used as currency and as trading commodities for millennia.



  1. Interesting blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would
    really make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your theme.


  2. First of all I would like to say superb blog!
    I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your
    thoughts before writing. I’ve had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting
    my ideas out there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just
    trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas
    or tips? Thanks!

  3. I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought
    this post was good. I don’t know who you are but
    certainly you’re going to a famous blogger if you aren’t
    already 😉 Cheers!

  4. It’s a pity you don’t have a donate button! I’d definitely donate
    to this excellent blog! I guess for now i’ll settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account.

    I look forward to brand new updates and will talk about this site
    with my Facebook group. Chat soon!

  5. Nice post. I used to be checking constantly this blog and I am impressed!
