Leaded glass is formed when lead oxide is added to molten glass before it is blown or molded. After hardening, the glassware is often hand or machine cut with facets designed to look like natural crystals.
Glass making in the Czech Republic is a historic cottage industry. These glass beads continue to be made by hand today.
