After many months of search for a perfect place Eureka Crystal Beads has finally moved to a new home. Our new address is: 1005 Main Street suite 112, Pawtucket, RI 02865. We are located now in the Hope Artiste Village. Hope Artiste Village is one of the largest mill restoration projects in Rhode Island. It is a hub of cultural activity. The Village hosts a mix of art studios, lofts, retail shops, light industrial workshops, high tech and internet companies and professional office suites. It boasts cafes, a coffee roaster, a live music venue, fitness studios, designers, artisans, event spaces and a bustling wintertime farmer’s market.

Moving our large inventory and setting up a new place, while we continue shipping your bead orders, is quite a challenge but don’t worry, your bead shipments continue going out in a timely manner.

To celebrate our move, which is directly related to Eureka Crystal Beads unprecedented growth, we have put our Czech Glass Beads and Toho Japanese Seed Beads on sale. It is a limited time sale so if you have not taken advantage of it yet please go to our website now otherwise you may miss it.

Czech Firepolish Beads are here to stay, buy them on sale now!

It seems that in the past year or so the entire focus of the beading industry has been on 2-hole beads and 4-hole beads. There is no question that this, relatively new, development of adding additional holes to the glass beads has revolutionized beading and hooked us even more on a hobby which we already liked, but it doesn’t mean that traditional one-hole beads are going away any time soon. As a matter of fact Eureka Crystal Beads now stocks and sells more Firepolish beads than ever before.

CzechMates, 2-hole Czech Glass Beads opening the most recent chapter in Bohemian glass making history…

I have been beading for a while and more I bead more I am getting hooked on this absolutely amazing hobby. I love Czech Glass Beads, all CzechMates, SuperDuos,  2-hole Silky and new 2-Hole Honeycomb beads. Recently I have made Honeycomb Beezzzz Bracelet, designed by Akke Jonkhof. I made it in several colors and  I absolutely love these bracelets. They are very easy to make and very comfortable to wear, and of course make a great gift.

In between my beading I started reading about the history of glass making in the Czech Republic, I was fascinated, not only does it explain the common looks, colors and finishes of the Czech beads that we know and love, but how they came to be.

Czech glass, also known as Bohemian glass or Bohemian crystal, is a decorative glass made in Bohemia and Silesia as far back as the early Bronze Age.

There, in early middle ages, Bohemian glass workers discovered that combining the naturally occurring potash (potassium carbonate) with chalk created a very clear, colorless glass that was of much better quality than the glass being made in Venice, another traditional glass-making center.

During a period of industrial revolution, Bohemia became specialized in the creation of Pressed Glass and Firepolish beads. Pressed Glass beads are made by pressing molten glass into a ready mold, leading to the vast variety of shapes available. The most popular are Czech Glass Leaves, Rose Petals, Czech Glass Bell & Trumpet Flowers.

Firepolish beads have been the most popular beads for a long time. They are still popular and Eurekas’ best sellers. Recently however the entire beading industry has been dominated by a new development – Czech beads with multiple holes. There is a large number of shapes and colors available in Czech Glass 2-hole Beads, and  two styles in 4-hole beads called QuadraLentils and QuadraTiles.

Starting next month you will be getting a new free pattern with each order. It will be a cool  bracelet. You’ll love it!

And now going back to our sale. You all use firepolish beads, but do you know where the name comes from?

Here are some interesting facts:

FIREPOLISH BEADS are pressed out of lead free, colored glass rods, processed in large drum-shaped, semi-automatic grinding machines to eliminate lumps, or irregularities and  placed in industrial ovens for firepolishing, during which their surface is slightly melted to make them look shiny and feel smooth. This ages-old, traditional firepolishing process transforms ordinary glass beads into sparkly, vintage looking beads sought after by all beaders.

Firepolish Gemstone Doughnuts are perfect for quick and easy but attractive projects. Make an earring featured below from discontinued colors (still in stock).
