Vintage Mercury Glass Beads From The Czech Republic

German papers aren't the only things new to the shop! We've received lots of new colors and styles of hand made mercury glass Christmas garland beads from the Czech Republic. These beads are blown into 100 year old molds and the same techniques for silvering and coloring are still used to make these.
Nothing adds Victorian charm to your Christmas tree like a hand strung mercury glass bead garland! You can see all the shapes, sizes and colors of beads we offer on our website or in our Etsy shop, accessible on the sidebar to the right. Have questions? We'd love to hear from you!
Below, a mix of traditional colored beads in specialty shapes.
And a group of brightly colored drop beads.
And round beads in three sizes...
Fancy silver beads... always a favorite!
We're also stocking a selection of bumped beads, bumped sticks, tube beads and caps for finishing garlands and ornaments.
