Czech Fire Polish Glass Beads
Matte Apollo Jet
- Fire Polished beads are glass beads that are faceted by machine. The edges and surface are then given a softer, polished look by placing the beads in hot ovens or over open flames. By virtue of this process, Fire Polished beads are all slightly different from each other; this adds to their charm. Unlike Austrian faceted crystals, Fire Polished beads contain no lead. It is the heat polishing process that gives them their soft glow and brilliance.
- In Czech Fire Polished beads, the shape called "round" is actually more of an oval.
- Color: Matte Apollo Jet
- Measurements: 3mm long, 2.8mm wide. The holes will accommodate wire or thread up to 22 gauge thick.
