Hollow beads were initially used for their making. These beads were coated with a pearl layer on the inside and then filled with wax.
Today, imitation pearls by the Preciosa® TRADITIONAL CZECH BEADSTM brand are currently made by dipping glass beads into a special varnish. The technology is very similar to the natural production of pearls.
The offer of shapes, sizes and colour shades is practically unlimited.
