Czech lampwork blue glass bead butterfly stem ornament decoration
The beads on this stem are handmade with rare and unusual glass from antique C19th canes. Each piece has been handcrafted by our highly accomplished lampworker using traditional skills. The C19th antique glass canes that have been used were discovered 10 years ago and are unique glass types that will never be made again due to the constituents of the glass and the level of skill required to work it.
Each individual headpin bead is made on a thin wire before being wired together.
These beautiful stems can be used for creating art glass installations, floral home decor vase arrangements, crafting and chandelier and lighting design. They can be displayed as single stems or in a grouping with other stems.
Although these were complex and time consuming to make, these represent extremely good value.

A few years ago we were fortunate enough to acquire the entire contents of a former button making factory in the Czech Republic. Included in the lot were almost 1000kg of antique glass cane. This cane dates from the 1900's to the 1940's and has the most remarkable pure colors with amethyst purple, Emerald green, Uranium, Ruby red, Amber, Cobalt blue and Sapphire blue to name a few. 

After sitting on the cane for a long time, we found an incredibly talented lampwork glass specialist in The Czech Republic who knew how to work with old glass. Antique cane is a unknown entity and it requires someone with years of experience to work with it. Our inspiration came from the almost lost art of making miniature glass flowers which date from the 1900's to the 1930's.
