Czech Firepolish Beads are a highly labor intensive bead that have been made for hundreds of years by Czech glass bead makers. They are formed by pressing hot glass into a mold and then roughly faceting it by hand or machine. The bead's surface is then slightly melted to a red hot oven or kiln to "fire polish" it. This slightly rounds off the edges giving it a better shine and luster.
