Exclusive Distributor of French Glass Beads

Bovis Bead Company

BOVIS BEAD DIVISION

The Bovis Bead Division of Crazy Crow Trading Post is proud to be your source for the remaining stocks of French Glass Beads from the last factory in France to produce beads. It was established in the 16th century by immigrant Venetian glass workers, but unfortunately it was forced to close its doors after struggling to survive the death of the last owner. These beads were manufactured using the old process, formulas and old world pride of workmanship, whereby the colors were made within the glass to produce a completely colorfast bead, guaranteed not to fade over the years. We have good stocks of many colors and sizes in these fine quality beads, as listed on our website and in our current catalog. These beads are well–suited for many different types of projects and are available in sizes from 7mm Crow Beads to 4mm and 5mm Pony Beads to the smaller 8/0 through the tiny 14/0 size.

Old Time Colors

We worked very hard to match the "Old Time" color seed and pony beads used by American Indians from the early 1800s to the mid–1900s, making these our specialty. Our "Old Time" colors are the same shades as the old Italian colors used during that era, enabling crafts people to continue accurate and skilled reproductions of historic American Indian beadwork. Just as in the old days, slight variations in color can occur from one batch to the next, due to various environmental factors which are beyond control. We also have a good selection of German Old Time beads which are excellent quality and will mix well with our French and Italian beads.

White Heart Beads

Another favorite bead of the era and cherished by the American Indian beadworker is the “White Heart”bead. We offer various colors of the White Heart in the traditional Ruby Red as well as the Old Time colors such as Greasy Yellow and Pony Trader, or Powder Blue. These beads have traveled the world, having been used as a means of trade and adornment throughout the Americas, Africa, Asia and other remote locations. These White Heart beads, also known as “Cornaline D’Allepo” beads, are truly historic, dating back to the 1500s. Unfortunately, stocks are limited on this type bead and they are very difficult to find now.   [View French White Hearts]

Regular Colors

Our Bovis Bead Division also carries a full line of standard, modern colors, many of which are not available in the Czech line. We offer Opaque and Transparent Seed Beads, Lustered Beads, and Tube Style Beads in the full size range.   [View French Seed Beads]
