Indonesian Glass Beads

What Are Indonesian Glass Beads?

Indonesia has a centuries-long history of glass bead making. Indonesian glass beads come in a wide variety of colors, shapes, and sizes. The most popular colors are white, blue and green. The beads are usually strung on thin thread or wire and can be worn as bracelets, necklaces, or earrings.

The traditional designs of Indonesian glass beads date back centuries when the beads were first made and traded by the Dutch East India Company. The Dutch used the beads to trade with the people of Indonesia for spices, tobacco, and other goods.

Today, Indonesian glass beads are still made by hand, using the same methods that have been passed down from generation to generation. The beads are often given as gifts or used to decorate clothing, jewelry, and other items.
