Explaining manufacturing process of seed
beads from raw material to products.
|Mix the raw materials SiO2, NaCO3, and
CaCO3 with any base-coloring ingredients and place
them in a 1400C furnace to make the melted glass.
|Move the melted glass to a slightly cooler
melting pot, and use a compressed air device to
blow the glass through a hole in the bottom of
the pot, making the glass tube shape.
The holes in the pots are shaped, which creates
the differently shaped beads.
|Cut the long glass tube into short pieces
using a special cutting machine.
|Mix carbon powder with these cut pieces and
heat them to 700C to make the cut pieces into round
|Rinse the cut beads to wash off the carbon powder and tumble to polish.
|The washed beads are not clear. Make clear beads by smoothing surface.
|Enhance the beads and create bead
variety through the process of silverline, dyeing,glazing,
rainbow and luster coating, etc.
|Carefully wash and dry the beads.
completed products are packaged in a poly bag, and then
exported to various countries.
