SRA- Self Representing Artist
Every bead is a piece of art. Individual and unique. Made out of quality Italian, German or American glass that is superior to other glass mass produced beads are made off.
The beads are put in a kiln to soak in a controlled temperature which makes the molecules in the glass become more stable (called annealing) allowing the glass to relax into place making. This makes the beads more durable and then they are cooled down slowly so there is no stress in the glass.
Most bead makers clean their beads with a diamond drill bit. So you will buy a unique piece of Art ready to make the some beautiful heirloom that can be passed down.
