We often also use the Czech press glass beads in our floating necklace designs. As common to all Bohemian glass work, the light capturing quality of these beads is one of the main attractions.
In the 18th century the Bohemians wanted to break their way into the French Chandelier market. As necessity is the mother of invention the Bohemians developed the technique of pressmoulding – squeezing the elements from a reheated glass cane. The tools basically resembled tongs, the ends of which could be fitted with various shaped molds.
Today’s tools are still closely related to the early designs, reflecting just how well thought out the entire process was initially done.
The Czechs might be best known for their handmade lampwork beads and we use these extensively in our lampwork beaded jewelry as lampwork drop earrings and lampwork necklaces are wonderful.
