  • Variety - Glass artisans offer an extraordinary scope of shapes, sizes, colours, finishes, and surface treatments offers the designer and maker broad scope in creativity.
  • Affordability
  • Versatility - use Czech seed beads in bead stringing, bead looming, bead weaving, decorative surface embellishment, such as embroidery, and crochet.
