*This color changes depending on the light.   Darker in some (as seen in photos) and lighter in fluorescent or natural lighting - so I included 2 photos with different effects that lighting will play on this bead.

We adore the effect of layered colors in handmade glass beads, so when we designed this collection, we considered multiple aspects: size (we prefer small, detailed beads), layered colors to create unique shades, a matte finish (reminiscent of the soft sea glass we grew up loving), hole size (to accommodate larger gauge wire), and shape—yes, the all-around round! Each element is thoughtfully incorporated to celebrate the beauty and intricacy of glass bead artistry.

      I began my bead-making journey in the early 1990s, initially falling in love with the craft through handmade and vintage glass beads. This passion led us to travel to Poland, Czech Republic, and Germany in the early 2000s to delve into the traditional techniques behind these exquisite pieces, design our own line, and amass a collection of historical glass dating back decades.

      We invite you to experience the charm of history with our collection of vintage glass beads, each piece ranging from 20 to 100 years old and crafted by skilled artisans from around the globe. Discover a piece of the past in every bead and share in the passion that started it all!
