They are widely used in decorative surface treatments on clothing and textiles in addition to delicate fashion jewellery, such as friendship bracelets and intricate weaving and loom work because of their uniform shape. These glass beads are made by the established glass company Preciosa (prior to that Ornela a state run factory by Jablonex) in the mountains north of Prague. Seed beads are also known as rocailles (French “little stones”) and are made of the highest quality glass by the drawn glass method. Literally the glass is drawn out to become a long hollow tube and then cut into small pieces. Seed beads are affordable, durable to work with and having a multitude of colours and finishes and sizes available give the crafts person broad scope in creativity. Sizing is based on the size rod used for the manufacture of glass beads. The smaller the number, the larger the bead.
