Glass Czech beads are recognized as being some of the best in the world. Here is a look into the history of the glass industry in Czechoslovakia, and the diverse items which can be created with these beautiful and versatile pieces. Czech Glass Trade Famous Czech beads are regarded as the most beautiful glass beads available. They have been in the market for centuries, even though the Czech Republic itself has only been a recognized country for just over a century. You might find yourself thinking: where did the colorful glass rounds originate? Exactly who makes the glass? These delightful beads are made by craftsmen in the Czech Republic - what makes them so distinctive? The process of making glass was created in the Middle East, in the oldest regions of Babylon, by Hebrews who fine-tuned their craft to become the finest glassmakers anywhere. Glass shops were set up in popular trade cities like Venice, Italy, which was one of the top areas for glass commerce, making trade possible. The glass craftsmen society struggled to keep the process of glass making restricted-they wanted the hugely sought after product to remain a rare and expensive find-for centuries they succeeded in keeping the method a secret, but Germany later developed their own process and started selling glass. How Glass Came to Czechoslovakia A Hungarian king enticed German glassmakers to move to his country in the fourteenth century and they started manufacturing glass there. He supplied an endless source of the sand and water that are required for crafting glass. The glass industry thrived in the Bohemian forests and trickled into many cities and towns-Jablonec was one of the most well-known glass-producing towns. Objects made from glass became the life source for several of the villages. New items such as ornamental bottle, etched windowpanes, beads and buttons emerged. Companies made glass pieces for stained glass panels to adorn windows and lamps, and created jewelry with the lovely beads. In order to slice the crystal into rounds for jewelry and other decorative items, Swarovski developed a special machine. After World War 1, and the crash of Hungary, Czechoslovakia was established, and the ongoing development of glass products was encouraged. Even with other wars and Communist rule, the industry survived and the attractive glass beads can still be acquired today. Czech Bead Products These attractive beads can be made into necklaces, purses, bracelets, earrings, and much more. You will be amazed by the various necklace styles that can be made out of glass beads. For special events such as weddings, formal dances and community events, exquisite pieces can be arranged.
