Here at Eureka, we are constantly scouring the small, family-run glass bead manufacturers of Bohemia in the Czech Republic for the most unique and most beautiful colors, shapes and finishes of Czech glass beads.
Our recent trip was no exception! Walter and Bonita met with company representatives at several small factories and poured over samples searching for the next big thing.
Our partners in the Czech Republic know that we specialize in uncommon finishes, special coatings and only the most beautiful, rare and unusual colors so they pulled out all the stops for us when we came to see the beautiful things that they have been working on.
We are very excited about the things we’ve seen and can’t wait to be able to present our latest finds. Keep an eye out for beautiful new Czech firepolish as well as pressed glass beads that we will be adding to our inventory shortly.
Bonita was especially excited over the beautiful new metallic finishes available as the worldwide jewelry trends continue to favor yellow golds and bright silvers as well as mixing of different metallic finishes.
Another trend that stood out was the complete lack of neons. While the bright neon trend is still going in the US is looks like the next wave of color preferences coming out of Europe will be more subdued and more classic jewel tones.
We’re also excited about the many new bead shapes that we will be adding to our inventory shortly and will announce those beads as we launch them.
Bonita will only reveal that we should be on the lookout for amazing new kinds of table cuts.
Stay tuned to see all the beautiful new items that will be coming from this trip!
