Etched Finish Beads

Etching is a patented method by which the surface of the beads—or any other glass—is etched by acidic compounds. The beads are placed on a metal net and dipped into the acid a few times, until the surface of the beads becomes etched as desired. Later, the beads are washed and finished to highlight the engraved surface.

The process of etching is a rejuvenation of sorts. The glass surface is torn down and built up again with artisan finishes. The result is a bead that feels like an ancient structure, beautifully preserved, and holding within it secrets and stories of centuries of beadmakers.
