I admit that the Peroni Beer Bottle beads started as a bit of a joke. You see, it’s an Italian beer, and that is where most of the glass that is used for glass bead-making is manufactured. I thought it would be funny to take the Italian Beer bottle, and recycle it to make glass beads!
Funnily enough, the green of that beer bottle is probably the prettiest bright green glass that I have used. I have made beads from a huge variety of wine bottles, but none of them come close to the brightness of the Peroni Beer. I’m glad I tried it.
Here are some photos of recent works, with links to my shop.
