This millefiori round bead is among the most famous Venetian glass beads being used today. The literal translation of millefiori is "thousand flowers," and the intricate flower embellishments in this bead is infused using world famous Murano glass rods and adorned with brilliant gold foil. This bead is created with the Zanfirico technique, which consists of heating glass rods, twisting them together, and coating them with a clear glass encasing. This results in an intricate filigree effect. The combination of the gold foil and aquamarine glass gives this bead beautiful color. Use this Venetian bead as a focal point on necklaces or simple earrings, or string multiple together for a beautiful effect.

This item is handmade, so appearances may vary. Because this bead is handmade it may have some rough edges around the bead holes, beading wire is recommended.

Diameter 16-17mm

Lovey, but very large
By YHW on December 20, 2015

Lovely beads, especially when paired with gold-foil beads and freshwater pearl. Beautiful color. Very large though - best for necklaces as it would be too heavy for earrings.

Beautiful Color, Excellent detail
By jmlb on June 23, 2011

The design in these beads is crisp and clear. The aquamarine color is bright and beautiful. I used them in a necklace similar to the design idea for the amethyst zanfirico. They are a little large for earrings, so could be used for them and would be stunning and dressy looking.

Magnifico!

Wow! The size shows off their beauty very well. I'm waiting to find just the right gold colored spacer to hang on a longer choker cable. I purchased three and the buyer will definitely have a one-of-a-kind.
