Here you see Smyks' selection of glass beads and lampwork beads, also known as European beads. All of them have large holes which make it very easy to string them on bracelet straps such as round-stitched leather cord
. The term “lampwork” refers to the fact that this type of beads was traditionally produced by hand with very simple means like a blowtorch to melt the glass.
The beads are available in an array of bright colours and patterns and are particularly suitable for bracelets and necklaces. You can of course mix the colourful glass beads with metallic ones like gold-plated
bracelet beads and charms.
