Czech Glass Druk Beads in Bright Orange Opalite 6mm

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


Czech glass "druk" (round pressed smooth surface) beads in bright tangerine orange.

These beads are called "opalite," describing the semi-opaque, cloudy, marbled appearance that creates a milky opalescence in the glass.

Production of glass beads in the Czech Republic (in an area called Jablonec nad Nisou) dates back to the 14th century. This age-old cottage industry is known for its fine workmanship and many of the beads are still made in small quantities by hand.

Please note that images are taken with a macro lens cameral to capture as much detail as possible. Pay close attention to the size description.

For reference, a quarter coin is about 24mm in diameter.

Bead size: 6mm in diameter (a bit smaller than a pea!)

Quantity: Sold by the strand. Twenty-five (25) beads per strand.
