Coffee Bean Glass Beads Matte One Strand
The story behind these beads is interesting, Friends of mine were in Czechoslovakia in a bead district visiting an old bead maker in his warehouse. The molds were piled up in shelves but one had fallen onto the floor. It was the coffee bean mold, hadn't been used for years. They bought it and took it to a factory there to have the glass coffee bean beads made you see here. I put them in acid to take the shine off them. I have quite a few strands still. They make really charming earrings.. and might be good if you wanted to introduce a collection of coffee jewelery to your local Coffee Shop!
