Soft Flex Company specializes in all types of glass beads, including artist and vintage glass beads. However, we are particularly proud of our recycled glass bead collection.
Because recycled glass beads are reminiscent of the glass found along the beach, they are often referred to as “sea glass” beads. Originally, the glass was given life as a bottle, cup, vase or tile. However, once broken, it was ugly and “useless” and, therefore, discarded. Buried and claimed by the ground, the unwanted glass lay in the soil where it collected minerals and its surface patinated through age and exposure.
Once unearthed, the glass fragments were lovingly selected. Recycled glass beads were hand-made from the molten fragments of the discarded original items, creating something ethereal - a beach glass effect with a spectrum of vivid colors, somehow not only recapturing but also exceeding the original beauty of the glass. Perhaps that is why delicate and intricate recycled glass beads have a truly magical and creatively inspiring quality?

These beads can be used to make eye-catching, one-of-a-kind jewelry such as necklaces, earrings, and bracelets. They can look spectacular when used decoratively on garments, purses, shoes, and other accessories. They can even be used as buttons for clothes.
