Venetian Glass Bead 14mm La Crima Ca'd'Oro Coin - Lilac
This ca'd'oro style Venetian glass coin has a base of soft pink Moretti glass with 24k gold foil and splashes of brown and copper, all encased in clear transparent glass. The popular leopard print of this bead will give your designs a beautiful natural appearance with high-end quality. As these beads are handmade, there might be rough edges around the bead holes, created where the glass connects to the mandrel. Use a bead reamer to remove these sharp edges and smooth the inside of the bead.

Very pretty earrings!August 3, 2010
They had more brown than pictured, still very pretty. I used these to make a pair of earrings. I think they would make a nice bracelet as well.
These beads have great colour, although the foil patterns are not as subtle as pictured. They are quite thick, and make lovely earrings paired with dangles. I made some up for a feminine friend and she wears them constantly.
