The glass is pressed into shape and then tumbled and smoothed. The next stage in the process is to bake a coating to the outside of the bead – a popular coating is a mottled “picasso” coating or a metallic coating. After this the beads are placed in between two large metal discs which rotate and gradually scrape away the surface of the bead to reveal the glass colour underneath – creating a “window” into the bead.
The result are stunning beads with a real “vintage” feel to them
