STORY OF THE BEADS

The beads used are composed of hand blown German glass from a glassworks studio in Sudetenland with the Bauhaus style popular during the 1920's.

During WWII the glassworks factory was bombed reducing it to rubble. The designer disappeared and molds broken. Decades later when the family went to rebuild, the beads were found in the debris.

Since they cannot be reproduced, these beads are rare and highly prized.

My husband and I were traveling through Europe when fate intervened and we met the family over dinner. By dessert, I had purchased as much of the collection as possible.

Each design is handmade by me using 14k gold fill, sterling silver or pure silk.
