EXPAND YOUR BEADING COLOR PALETTE. Each mix is expertly designed to contain a unique blend of color, shape and size.
TWO-HOLE BEADS WERE WIDELY USED UNTIL THE LATE 1930s when the Great
Depression and World War II had an effect on supply. Our factory, a former Jablonex supplier, ramped up production on these increasingly popular beads and the *A
FIRST SHIPMENTS ARE IN AND THEY’RE GOING FAST.
This unique style is based on a square with two parallel holes. Once old, being made new again with the help of modern technology creating
CONSISTENT QUALITY AND FABULOUS FINISHES.
We are proud to offer these beads in more colors and finishes than ever before. This design is perfect for symmetrical patterns and is very popular in fringing, bracelets and jewelry designs. In addition, CzechMates™ Tile Beads work well with single needle ladder, advanced herringbone, peyote and square stitches. Other varieties of the CzechMates™ Tile bead exist. Miyuki, a Japanese seed bead manufacturer, produced a similar seed bead version. The manufacturing techniques differ tremendously where seed bead tiles, aka Tila beads, are drawn from molten glass into rods and then cut. CzechMates™ are INDIVIDUALLY
PRESSED FROM MOLDS CREATING PERFECT CONSISTENCY and a softer pillow-like shape.
When the two types are compared side-by-side in many patterns, the inherent beauty and adaptability of the CzechMates™ is readily apparent. 10

DESIGNERS TRAILING FUCHSIA VINE
Nichole has been an integral part of the industry for over 12 years wholesaling Czech glass. She has produced some of the world’s most notable styles and colors of beads. Inspired by her love for art history, Nichole loves the infinite possibilities using the bead color palette to create wearable works of art. The introduction of Toho brand seed beads into her work has given new dimension to designing with Czech glass.
Jenn began beading when she was in middle school. It started with a kit bought from the local craft store and she hasn’t stopped since. Her chosen color palette reflects her outdoor upbringing by using the greens and browns that surround her in her everyday life. Seed beading has always been her chosen medium, but since coming to work for Starman she has begun to expand her design knowledge.
Eileen is a mother, grandmother, artist and the owner of Bead Street in Boise, Idaho. She is a true beadaholic; she loves her customers and teaching jewelry making classes. Her other interests include watercolor painting, gardening, and bird watching. Some of her most incredible works were created while pursuing her passion for traveling and experiencing other cultures.
