    Whether you love your beads small like these flower beads or chunky for your jewellery making, craft and quilting projects, the design possibilities of Czech glass beads are endless. Czech pressed glass beads are produced in moulds allowing for more complex shapes and a uniform size and hole. Round isn't everything. We stock the most extraordinary range in Australia of Czech glass pressed shapes many of which are made exclusively for Etelage by small cottage industry makers dotted across the dramatic wooded countryside of the Czech Republic. We are known for our large range of bold colours, opaque finishes and chunky shapes plus stock all the basic bead shapes also from round to delicate flowers. Check them out and make your own jewellery designs, quilting projects etc notably unique with Czech glass. Once you have discovered the quality, diversity and hertitage of Czech glass beads you will want to use them in all your vintage and modern beading and embellishing projects!
