I am certain just from looking at them that they're made in China, and I would be willing to buy some and run some testing to back that up.
I have no patience for ripoff artists like this. I will write to them and obtain a statement about where the beads are made, and proceed from there.
The more frauds can be shut down, the safer the market for the buying public. That's why these laws exist to begin with.

OK, I put three beads from Austin Hamilton, which he claims are
annealed, into my glass kiln. I fired these in a kiln washed pyrex
bowl. I followed a kiln firing schedule from a famous lampworker, which
was heat up to 920 F, at a rate of 1000 degrees per hour, hold for 20
minutes. Turn off the kiln, let cool naturally down to room
temperature. The results: none of the beads cracked. So...I know this
is a small sample, but maybe they do anneal their beads. I would
welcome all lampworkers and all others on the n/g's opinion on this.
