Lampwork beads are made by using a blowtorch to heat a rod of glass and spinning the resulting thread around a metal rod. When the base bead has been formed, other colors of glass can be added to the surface to create many designs. Oftentimes, after this initial stage of the bead-making process is done, the bead is further fired in an oven to increase its sheen and to make it more durable. Czech glass beads are the best quality available!
Nano beads measure 10x5mm & have an interesting organic shape. The large hole and organic shape allow for many unique designs. The 3.5mm holes will fit onto many sizes of cords. Try multiple thin cords or one larger. For beadwork or stringing, consider filling the hole with a small seed bead to help support and position the hole. Made in the Czech Republic.
