This Venetian round bead has a transparent aqua exterior that surrounds its opaque white center. Use these Venetian beads as focal points on necklaces or simple earrings, or string them together for a beautiful effect. Due to the handmade nature of these beads, 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. We also recommend using beading wire, as the rough edges can wear down thread.
