The art of glass beads is closely linked to the wealth of knowledge and the mastery of a material, glass, and of an element, fire. This art brings together shared knowledge and incorporated
techniques, refers to particular artisan procedures and tools and includes different processing stages. The candidacy focuses on know-how, on the social and cultural implications of this art and
not just on the created object.
