Silver foil creates an inner glow at the center of this 10mm Venetian glass cobalt bead. These dark blue beads make excellent focal pieces in bracelets or earrings. You can also use them scattered throughout necklace designs for some high quality color. Each bead is handmade by holding glass rods over a flame, then gently working the molten glass over the mandrels. Due to the handmade nature of these beads, there might be rough edges around the bead holes. Because of this, we suggest using beading wire instead of thread.
