Our unique collection of Vintage Glass Mardi Gras Bead Jewelry is made from colorful strands of Vintage Czechoslovakian glass beads. Up until the 1960's, glass beads from Czechoslovakia were very popular and widely thrown. These beads became obsolete when riders began throwing less expensive and more durable beads like the mostly plastic ones you see today. Czechoslovakian glass Mardi Gras beads are highly collectible and a wonderful part of the history of carnival.
We deconstruct the original strands of beads and turn them into elegant, timeless and beautiful pieces of one of a kind jewelry.
