CAPRI BLUE AB Czech Fire Polish 3mm Beads q.50
ITEM: Czech Crystal Fire Polished Beads
COLOR: CAPRI BLUE AB*
QUANTITY: 50 pack
Czech Firepolish Beads are a highly labor intensive bead that have been made for hundreds of years by Czech glass bead makers. They are formed by pressing hot glass into a mold and then roughly faceting it by hand or machine. The bead's surface is then slightly melted to a red hot oven or kiln to "fire polish" it. This slightly rounds off the edges giving it a better shine and luster.
*Aurora Borealis (AB) - 1/2 coat metallic finish that adds a prismatic effect to the surface of the bead. The beads are placed in an oven where a chemical reaction between metals produces fumes that adhere to the exposed surfaces of the bead.
