Each of these 10mm Venetian glass beads has a thick grey glass shell surrounding a delicate gold foil center, combining for a color that is almost green in hue. These beads are an elegant addition to any collection and would look beautiful when accented by Swarovski crystals or freshwater pearls. Making them the focal pieces in your earring designs is an easy decision. Due to the handmade nature of these beads, there may be rough edges, or stringers, around the bead hole, where the glass connected to the mandrel. Use a bead reamer to remove these rough edges.
