Pressed beads, first heated on a mandrel (rod) in much the same way that lamp work beads are made today. A 'press' which almost resembled tongs used to cook with, was then wrapped around the molten glass to form the desired shape. Very detailed impressions were on the ends of these tongs that were used in these vintage Czech pressed glass beads so that the final bead looks 'etched' or 'carved'.
This European Art Glass jewelry collection combines antique, vintage and new glass in my original designs, available only at Tapestry Collectibles.
A note from Beth the artist: For over 25 years my art studies, passion for travel, experiencing different cultures and meeting new people has taken me on journeys around the world. I love using vintage and antique glass collected from European travel, designing a new piece that reflects beauty and preserves glass as ORIGINALLY made ...yet brings forth a new statement of my own.
Will make a FABULOUS gift for yourself or someone special in your life!!
