Introducing The Cali Bead!


Cali is being launched exclusively by John Bead – one of the biggest manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors of Czech glass beads in the world. In their 63rd year, they begin 2017 with this exciting bead project.

Cali is a 3-hole bead made of Czech glass measuring 3×8 mm. It is available in over 50 colors and special effects. This new bead will showcase seed beads spectacularly, which are the staple of designer pieces that illustrate bead-weaving techniques.

Cali is curved on both sides boasting a double convex surface, which gives the consumer the ability to use it as a spacer or as structural pillar. The creative beader will construct complex shapes, making the possibilities endless.

John Bead is thrilled to introduce a new shaped bead to the DIY industry. British/Colombian designer Patty McCourt designed this new bead.  Mrs. McCourt is considered a seed bead designer extraordinaire and named her bead after her hometown.
