There’s something very special about frosted glass beads.
They stand out in a crowd, are very different from their glazed counterparts, and add attractive elements to jewellery creations.
Perfect for bangles and bracelets, ideal earring ingredients, this collection would enhance a lovely necklace too.
This collection contains almost 220 multicoloured frosted glass beads measuring 10mm each and comes complete with a useful 1mm threading hole.
Mixed colours include red, orange, topaz, yellow, mustard, blue, violet, fuchsia, ruby, magenta, red, topaz, forest green, and among others, charcoal.
Over the years, Indian bead makers have perfected their bead-making skills, and today, India is one of the largest bead producers in the world - with the majority of beads being produced in Varanasi – located in the northeast of the sub-continent.
Ranging from hand-carved wooden beads to tiny glass seeds, the traditional beads found in India cover a wide range of styles, materials, and treatment processes.
The beads made in Varanasi are exported in huge quantities throughout the world.
