Pressed glass is an important term when referring to Czech glass beads.  Artisans create these beads by taking heated glass and pressing it into a shaped mould. The glass, while it is molten hot, takes the shape of the mould.  In this case a round bead, but they can be formed in 100s of shapes.

Apple Blossom Pressed & Faceted Glass Earrings

Pink and Plum look gorgeous together in these Apple Blossom earrings.

The smooth round glass is a lovely contrast to the facets of the pink. The top pale pink bead is uncoated, while the bottom bead has a beautiful Aurora Borealis coating on one side of the bead which provides lovely flashes of colour when they move.

Aurora Borealis (AB), is a bead treatment inspired by the Northern Lights and was invented in 1956 by Swarovski in partnership with Christian Dior.

The round pressed glass bead is from the Czech Republic and is a beautiful transparent purple shade which gives a contrast to the pinks and adds some depth to the design.

They measure approx. 4.75cm long.
