Hooray for Pressed Czech Glass Flower Beads!
Hey bead lovers! Spring is finally here! What better way to celebrate than a blog all about Flower Beads! In today’s post I wanted to place the spotlight on these gorgeous pressed Czech Glass Flower beads in the shape of a five petal Hibiscus flower. I will share with you a variety of color palettes and project ideas which you can incorporate these beads into and all you need to know about these treasures!
Organic, rustic, antique, delicate all in one. Bring a pop of Hibiscus to your designs!
Pressed Czech Glass Flower beads are 9mm, a great size to work with. They have an exquisite porcelain look to them and lovely striation details in the center. In the recesses of those striations are colors that carry all the way from the front through the side and to the very back. They have the same detailed design on both sides and a single hole going through the middle from side to side. It appears as if each bead was hand painted into a delicate blooming flower. They are available in a variety of colors, antique finishes & washes!
Want to incorporate these beads into a project? Here are some color palette ideas including gradations.
Make fun color gradations. Some of these color palettes are beautifully muted, which is why they are so versatile. The colors we have available allow you to pair these with something brighter or with something even more muted and darker. All up to you!
