Artbeads Cafe Giveaway – Fun Czech Glass Shapes with Matching Pendants

Did you know we have over 6,000 different kinds of Czech glass beads on our website? That’s so many colors, shapes, and textures to play with in your jewelry designs. Our latest Artbeads Cafe episode was a special Facebook Live session all about Czech glass! In the episode, Cheri and Cynthia make jewelry on the fly with unique Czech glass bead shapes to inspire you. You can win some of the Czech glass and pendants the ladies worked with during our giveaway! Make sure to read to the end of the post to find out how. 

In this video, there are lots of beautiful Czech glass beads on display, along with findings that Cynthia picked out to use alongside them. That’s the beauty of Czech glass. They are versatile beads that make charming accents to any kind of component. Here’s a closer look at some of the beads on the table:

From gleaming fire-polished beads and smooth rounds to playful flowers and drops, there were lots of inspiring choices on the table. Cheri started off designing with pear-shaped Czech glass drops. She makes messy wrapped loops on the tops of the beads to add them to her necklace strand. You can see even more tips on how to make messy wraps in our tutorial video. Cynthia picked up dagger beads and old style drops first and experimented by pairing them with a lovely brass dragonfly pendant. Then, she had fun with goddess beads. If you’re looking for more inspiration, we’ve had fun with these shapes in previous jewelry ideas from our Design Studio, too. 

Cynthia made some cute goddess bead earrings with chain tassels in her Athena’s Triumph set. Becky also made some cute messy wrapped loop dangles with Czech glass pear drops in her Mint Julep set. Cynthia’s Lady Dragonfly pieces are a great showcase for dangling dagger beads. 

Our Czech glass Artbeads Cafe episode was tons of fun and now we want to give away some Czech glass beads so you can play with these unique beads. Cynthia picked out some drops, rounds, melon beads, and coin shapes along with the dragonfly pendant she used in the episode and a beautiful Gardanne Beads pendant. To enter, just follow the prompts below and make sure to leave a comment in the comments section about how you use Czech glass in your designs.

We’ll pick one lucky winner on June 6th, 2019. Good luck!

    I am presently making paperweights and using Czech beads in making the bezel and beading around the paperweight. Also, I love working with Czech beads with bracelets. I’m addicted to loom beading and these incorporate wonderfully.

    I am so addicted to Czech beads and purchase a great many of them from Artbeads.com. I especially love the gorgeous selection of rondells, coin beads, buttons, and now the half drilled finial beads! I have used Czech beads in Viking weave bracelets and necklaces, multi-strand bracelets and necklaces, pendant necklaces using the buttons, and of course, many earrings! Love those Czech beads!

    I use Czech beads on one or two inch lengths of of craft wire to make beaded links – wrapped loops at each end for small beads on 22 g and simple loops for larger beads on 20 g – for necklaces, bracelets and earrings. I particularly like your miscellaneous shapes.

    One of the first wire bracelets I made was with Czech fire polished beads. It turned out great. I love the variety of the Czech beads and the colors are amazing. I’m always buying new beads as I use them continuously in my jewelry.

    I mix some czech beads with spacers. Maybe use a czech disc as a focal or use several separated by seed beads in a bracelet.
