Hi everyone! I am looking to create custom glass beads from some designs I've created, but after quite a search & many emails, I am striking out. I am looking to create geometric shaped glass beads in different colors (not lampwork beads). I have searched endlessly for specific colors that I want, but I can't seem to find what I need. Any suggestions as to who may be able to help create custom beads would be much appreciated. Thank you!
find a local glass artist and go to them........there is hard glass and soft glass and the colors can change when heated, so you'll need to show drawings and colors. hopefully you will find what you want. if you are looking at all sorts of glass, I cannot imagine why you are not finding the color you want.

Here is a web site that has a color chart of basic Czech glass. On the left side see colours and click on that.

Here is another site that has a detailed color chart http://www.glass-beads.cz/?p=color-chart click on the English flag and then open catalog. All the colors are by number.
