They can come in many shapes from a perfect sphere to a cylindrical shape

Different bead colours can be obtained by using different dyes in the molten solution and items such as sequins, flecks of gold or silver foil and even smears of different colours than the original shade are often put into the molten solution prior to setting to give a different visual effect for the finished article. The jewellery which is produced is usually everyday jewellery and is either beaded together to produce everyday wear rather than anything too formal or rich.

Examples of artistically produced beads are lampworked, Dichroic and Millefori.The glass kettles more artistically produced beads tend to be used either in formal or going out accessories or in the increasingly popular field of wedding jewellery where high class, well made pieces which will photograph and age well are sought after. They can come in many shapes from a perfect sphere to a cylindrical shape.ClassificationsIn addition to the usual glass sphere which is rather common place and found in most stores en masse there are other varieties which are produced individually by glass auteurs and as such these are more highly sought after, are more expensive and the jewellery they are then used to create is in turn more sought after and more expensive.UsesAs the most common glass beads are often sold in larger quantities by their metric weight and are relatively inexpensive they are used by many as filling for costume jewellery and the art of this is known as beading.

They are a form of pressed glass and are produced when molten glass is poured into the appropriately shaped mould, stamped down with a press to ensure a shatter proof and smash resistant - at least as much as can be expected when moulding glass - and then left to set. They are widely available and can be purchased either online or from many specialist craft shops and haberdasheries.A glass bead is a piece of glass with a hole which goes through the centre of it where it can be threaded onto string or thin metal to either create jewellery or be used as an embellishment for a garment or accessory item.

Loved this book the second time around even more!!!
Throne of Glass - Sarah J. Maas

I read the series before but I will be rereading one book each month from the series, to see how I feel this time around. 

I really loved the characters so much more this time around, even though Dorian is still my favorite character in this book. I know that might be an unpopular opinion but I love characters that aren't perfect and I love guys who are considered "playboys," who really have a sensitive side. I really don't consider him a player at all, but I know some readers do. I also love his friendship with Celaena.

Celaena I still get mad at a lot, I really feel like she was just using Dorian, not the friendship part but the relationship part. I really liked Celaena and Chaol's relationship a lot more this time around. Last time I didn't care at all for there relationship and I didn't really care for Chaol. The first time around I just was like okay his just there, and the only thing I liked about him the first time around was his friendship with Dorian. I actually felt more of a chemistry between Dorian and him. Of course not in a sexual way, but as brothers. If they didn't think about themselves as brothers then, I wouldn't have minded them as a couple. But they definitely had a Bromance going on that is freaking awesome. 

I thought Celaena for being an assassin was pretty stupid at times. And I really wish she would have used that skill set more. I did like the ending but of course you could know what was going to happen. Even if it is your first time reading the book. 

Favorite scene was the library scene with her and Chaol. And when she wanted to read some books, and the note she sent someone, to get permission. And of course my absolute favorite part with the puppy. 

Favorite side characters Nox and Nehemiah, (sorry if I spelled her name wrong. )
