Reproduction York Glass Beads
A set of reproduction glass beads based on finds from York
This necklace with glass beads is based on originals from York. Glass beads were a coveted item with some being imported from as far away as the Middle East. They were manufactured by specialised artisans who would heat various coloured glass rods over a furnace and melt the glass onto a metal stick to form different shaped beads.
