Javanese (Indonesian) glass lampwork beads are highly sought, but a bit difficult to find.

These beads are hand made by village artisans (mainly on the island of Java), using traditional methods passed on from generation to generation, and designs that reach back centuries when the beads were first made and traded by the Dutch East India Company.  The Dutch used the beads to trade with people of Indonesia for spices, tobacco and other goods.

Once you discover and fall in love with Javanese glass beads, you will recognize them from then on!
