What Are Fire Polished Czech Beads, Anyway?

These sparkly and shiny beads differ from the other cut beads you’ll see at the store. For starters, fire polished glass beads are more durable because of the ‘polishing’ process. This traditional polishing method is a crucial part of the Czech glass bead-making process. Craftsmen rely on heat instead of friction to polish a glass bead’s different facets. By putting the beads in a specific temperature, the heat causes the surface of each facet to melt, which creates a shiny and smooth surface.

How Are They Made?

The glass beads start off as round and are ground until they get tiny facets that will eventually reflect light, giving them, a crystalline appearance. The beads are then placed in a furnace so that their multiple facets get a smooth appearance. To make the shape uniform, the beads are added to a flash fire.
