Crystal Velvet ~ Glass Beads

One of the componants used in many of the bridal tiaras and jewellery are glass beads. Owning a bead store makes sourcing the right beads easier and our international contacts prove very handy in helping to find the perfect item.
The most used product is delica beads. These are tiny beads cut from a fin glass tube and they add detail, texture and sparkle. The range of colours that the delica beads are available in is huge.
For some of the tiaras and jewellery I use lampwork beads. These are beads that have been individually hand made using torches and glass rods. The style of these beads can be amazing and the intricate detailing is wonderful and very time consumming to create.
