Clear sapphire glass wraps around the opaque white center of this Venetian round bead for a beautiful effect. Use it to add cool tones to your jewelry designs or create something with an ocean or winter theme. 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. We recommend using beading wire and not thread, as the rough edges can wear down the thread. Have fun designing with this bead or try browsing for other beautiful Venetian glass beads.
