Crystal beads history

2012-09-18

While beads have been present in one form or another throughout history, glass and crystal beads did not become a manufacturable product until the 1200s, when glass factories started producing household items along with a small number of beads. Small factories were creating glass beads, but the turning point came in the 1500s when the glass industry became the leading industry in Stanovsko, Jablonec and Bedrichov, all major cities in the region of today's Czech Republic. Beads became fashionable and jewelry makers demanded product to fill the desires of the public.
When considering the history of crystal beads, mention must be made of the creation of leaded glass or crystal itself. While history doesn't show an inventor of the glass itself, there have been pieces discovered that suggest that the addition of the lead to the glass may have been accidental. However, the patent for mass producing lead crystal glassware shows George Ravenscroft of Venice as discovering the formula that creates the clear sparkling shine inherent in crystal. Once his patent expired, most of the major glass manufacturers converted their processes and began to produce his crystal.

What exactly is a wig and who use wig?

2012-08-31

A wig refers to a head of hair processed and designed by skilled hair technicians so as to provide an artificial crowning glory for people. It may be made out of real human hair, horse hair, buffalo hair, wool, animal fur, feather, and/or other synthetic materials.

Who uses wigs?

Unlike other hair replacement options, wearing wigs is not only a choice for those people who are simply going bald because of old age, those who have pattern baldness (common for men), and people who are losing their hair because of medical treatments (ex. Chemotherapy). Rather, wigs have become a popular option for people who simply want to create a fashion statement or be in style.

As observed nowadays, wigs are often used by models for fashion shows: theater actors and actresses for their stage performances: and Hollywood stars for various pictorials, public appearances and movie performances. Indeed, wigs have become significant components of the fashion industry in most fashion-and-style oriented countries.

2012-08-16

Make sure the nail surface is clean and free from any particles. Wash the nails with warm water and dry them with a paper towel or cloth.
Open the nail polish and dip the brush into the polish. Run the brush across the bottle's opening to remove any excess polish. Stroke the nail with the brush starting from the base to the tip of the nail. Evenly coat the entire nail with the polish. Complete this step on all nails twice, giving the nail two coats of polish. Allow the nails to dry before beginning the design.
Find your desired design for your nails and choose your colors to complete the design.
Dip the paintbrush or nail art brush into the acrylic paint color of your choice. Do not drown the brush with paint; simply wet the brush at the tip so that it is coated with a thin layer. Try to choose a paint color opposite of your base color, i.e. blue base color with yellow design paint color.

Reasons for wholesale china beads

2012-08-08

For a jewelry maker, it is always a good idea to consider buying China beads from wholesale dealers. There are many reasons for this. Some of the major ones are as follows:

Since you are buying directly from the manufacturer, there are no middle men involved and therefore, no extra costs. Wholesalers also offer discounts and sales. They often have to clear their inventory to make room for new items coming in. So when you are going to buy bulk China beads, don't forget to check out the discounts and sales.
Save Time - when you buy in small quantities, the beads could finish before you are done with your jewelry making project. style flower cabochons. This means you have to waste your time going to your supplier and buy more. When you purchase in bulk, you already have a huge stock of beads. You can always order more before they are finished.
Save The Environment - packaging materials can have a bad impact on the environment. Beads which are sold in small packs often come in plastic bags and if these are not disposed off correctly, they can be harmful for the environment. Lampwork Glass Beads. When you buy China beads from wholesale dealers, you will most probably get all the beads in a box, which is more environmentally friendly.
