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. Use this Venetian bead as a focal point on necklaces or simple earrings, or string multiple together for a beautiful effect. The exterior gold foil on this bead will wear off after time, especially in contact with oil and lotion.

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

Very nice!
By mjones on March 9, 2013

Thought I'd try these beads for a necklace. I really liked the design on the bead. It turned out great! The gold matched really nice with the gold-filled beads, and goes really well with pearls. It's a bit heavy for earrings, but I loved as a focal bead for my necklace. I will be ordering more Venetian beads in the future.

Great Color!
By jmlb on May 24, 2011

This bead in this color matches light gold pearls really well. It would also match white pearls really well. The size is just large enough to be a smallish focal for a pearl necklace. The size is a little large for earrings except for a large-size wearer. If used for earrings, they might be a little heavy. I don't know how durable this bead would be for a bracelet. The picture on my monitor matches the item well.
