Proceeds from this special project go directly to the Museum’s operating fund. HCA works with local glass artists to recycle broken or damaged colored Heisey glass into beads. The glass is melted down and hand crafted into glass beads for you to wear every day.
Colored and ornamental beads on bracelets are quite popular and these beads look amazing. The Heisey Beads will make a great gift. This project has proved very popular and many have requested desired colors for the next series of beads. We are in need of more broken or damaged-beyond-repair Heisey glass for the next color series. The colors are all based on availability of broken glass. So it’s really up to you what is produced next. Send your broken colored (Cobalt, Tangerine?) Heisey glass labeled “Damaged Glass for Heisey Beads” to the Museum and we’ll see what the artists create. Look for the new Heisey beads in original Heisey colors in our shop very soon.
Great fun to mix and Match colors of Heisey beads, and the history of where they came from.
These beads were made to fit, Pandora or Troll style bracelets and necklaces. They also will fit on hoop earrings and are versatile and stylish enough to wear everyday!
