This collection of delicate necklaces, bracelets and matching earrings combines superb quality crystal glass peacock beads with other top quality beads from around the world. These include Japanese seed beads, sterling silver tubular beads and spacer beads, and fresh water pearls. Recently I have also started to design jewellery incorporating Swarovski faceted fire polished glass beads that come from Austria.
The Czech Republic have been producing fine crystal glass beads since the 14th Century. Today they produce some of the highest quality glass beads in the world using traditional press moulding methods as well as making cane glass and fire polished beads. Peacock beads are a relatively recent innovation whereby iridescent spots or other shapes are printed onto novel shaped beads with delicious results.
