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.


We now have over 500 uniquely beautiful colors and finishes in sizes ranging from 2 mm Firepolish beads to 8 mm Firepolish beads. We have so much of them that we decided to reward our fellow beaders with the year’s end firepolish beads sale.


This sale has just started, is limited to only 2 days and, depending on which Firepolish beads you are buying, you can save 25% and in some cases way over 30%. So go to Eureka Crystal Beads website now and stock up on your favorite colors.

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).

Purple Opaque AB carries the purple trend and takes it one step farther with the shimmery Aurora Borealis finish that adds glitter and bling with every movement.

Milky Sapphire Twilight

Milky Sapphire Twilight

This beautiful new firepolish color is a base bead of Milky Sapphire with the Twilight finish giving it the beauty of a bright blue and the interest of a darker metallic coating. These stunning beads are great in combination with a variety of colors and work well with the sky blue color trend that’s really big this summer.

Capri Blue Luster

Capri Blue Luster

Another beautiful bead with the luster finish, Capri Blue Luster evokes the summer feel of sun shimmer off the surface of deep blue water and lends a tranquility to any color palette.



The beauty of this deep blue – almost purple Cobalt cannot be overstated. Unembellished with any special finishes or coatings, this bead is simply a magnificent color all on it’s own and you can be sure it will make for eye catching designs.

Blue Miracle Iris Glow
