- What makes the lights sold at Little Light Bazaar of higher quality than most of the lights sold in Turkey or on the internet?
First, we use nothing but high quality glass in the making of the globes. Low quality glass can discolor or warp with the heat of the bulb. The mosaic used in our glass is made of Czechkoslavakian glass. We do not use colored glass. We use high quality adhesives to attach the mosaics to the glass because low quality adhesives lose their adhesion after some time and the mosaics fall off. We also limit the percentage of beads in each globe. And, when we do use beads, it’s only for aesthetic purposes with glass beads. Beads are not as expensive as mosaic. Many manufacturers of these lights use plastic beads to cover the surface of the globe in order to reduce the cost of making the mosaic items.
