Beads of Bohemia

In the middle of the 16th century in a region called Bohemia... a new craft was born. Glass bead making. Because of the area’s abundant resources of water, quartz, and sand needed to create these little treasures, the craft grew into a thriving glass industry. If you visit be sure to go to the glass museums! 

There are a couple of larger factories but many beads are produced in smaller family run "factories". that still thrive today. We try our best to work with smaller businesses whenever we can.
