Join us THIS Saturday for a massive trunk show of the most beautiful glass made by the artisans of Jablonec in the Czech Republic.

Often using vintage molds, this style of bead will give you the old world feel but with a modern look and produced in some of the most amazing colors finishes that can often look like real stone. The true essence is difficult to capture on camera so don’t miss this chance to see and feel them!
