|Re: Does anyone have beads like these? -- Luann Udell||Post Reply||Edit||Forum||Where am I?|
Mine came from two sources: a mixed strand of mosaic Roman and Islamic period glass beads and fragments bought in Tucson, and some from a mixed strand of all sorts of beads bought in Iran.
The red molded glass beads are indeed still being made in Czech. Was once at a stand of a Dutch dealer where one buyer was also convinced they were ancient. I had a picture of a full Islamic prayer set made form Czech beads with me on my iphone, and that sorted the debate quickly.
