So what is the difference between Bohemian and Czech glass beads? None at all. It all comes down to the history of the region and how the region’s name changed after WWI.
Bohemian beads are Czech beads.
Before 1918 the area now known as the Czech Republic was called Bohemia.
Now days the name ‘Bohemia’ refers to a region north west of Prague where there is a strong industry of glass making including beads, buttons and baubles. It is probably best known now days for being the home of the best quality handmade lampwork beads that are used to make beautiful lampwork jewelry such as dangle earrings, long beaded necklaces with the classic Czech glass encased lampwork beads.
