About Venetian Crackled Glass Beads
The Venetian glass makers of the 16th century invented the marvelous process
of the "crackle" heating and cooling technique, creating a multitude of reflective
surfaces, so every movement displays sparkling new radiance.

as the highest quality machine cut and polished crystal beads in the world since 1892.
During early decades of the 20th century, Swarovski Austrian Crystals became an essential
ingredient in the world of high fashion. This still holds true today! Swarovski creates its glass with
a special compound that imitators cannot duplicate. The special compound creates the incredible
brilliance of their product. The delicate color palette is another quality that sets Swarovski
crystal components apart from others.
