These Venetian beads display a variety of colors just below the surface, reminiscent of the brilliant, colorful art of Gustav Klimt. Just below the pieces of bright glass is a core of gold or silver foil, adding to the bright blue, red, green and yellow patches of color. These brilliant Venetian glass beads are made by holding glass rods over a flame, then gently working the molten glass over the mandrels to create shapes including hearts, cubes and rounds. Venetian glass is world-renowned for its quality and beauty, and these beads are as versatile as they are vibrant.
