Glass Bead Artisan


Glass Beads being fired.

Every glass bead used in Hands to Hearts’ beautiful necklaces and bracelets are individually hand blown by  artisans.  Then the beads are strung on silk threads.  The beading artisans, working on floor pillows, start a new piece by looping the thread around a toe.  Then every bead is strung with handmade knots in between.  Each piece of jewelry is a specially created piece of artwork.
