About Glass Beads

Glass beads are very adaptable and can be sewn on, stuck to and threaded very easily. They are particularly popular with those wanting to create a bespoke, decorative jewellery; be it to beautify a trinket or ornament, or create a unique item of jewellery.

Working with glass beads is a popular hobby, providing a sense of satisfaction and pleasure. The beauty of glass beads is that you can be highly creative as well as being given the control to create highly customised pieces of jewellery, thanks to the boundless choice of glass beads available.
