What are glass pearls

These are man-made and coated to give a fantastic glossy eye-catching sheen. Like genuine pearls they have a substantial feel and weight, and are cool to the touch.

Advantage of glass beads
They cost less than real pearls or gemstones and look almost the same. Except they lack the grooving found in cheaper natural pearls. They are more varied, in different shapes and bright colours like yellow, red, green and blue - as well as sparkling shades like aqua, magenta and rose. 

Mix glass with other beads
When making jewellery, blend glass with gemstones depending on the design. A formal necklace may use a few crystal beads threaded with glass beads to give an impression of style and expense. However, a more casual look might incorporate shells instead.
