These are fantastic cranberry-red Czech glass beads, perfect for your holiday or every-day designs. Fire-polish beads are one alternative to more expensive gemstone beads; they can provide sparkle and light to a creation that otherwise might be drab. These beads are handmade in the Czech Republic through a process of molding, facet-cutting, and firing in a high-temperature furnace. The process gives the bead a beautiful sheen and scratch-resistant surface. (For more information on Fire-polish beads, see our blog post on this subject, at:
These strands are gorgeous deep red (cranberry) (approx.) 8 mm Rondell Beads. (They are slightly spotted near the holes as shown, in white-gray/black, for a great look with 'depth'.) Each strand has 25 sparkling beads; strands are sold separately at $8.00 each.
