Light green glass wraps around the gold foil center of this 20mm Venetian glass coin, giving it a lovely mixture of green and gold tones. The shimmering gold catches the light even through the glass. Use this glass bead as the centerpiece for a jewelry design or combine it with other Venetian glass coins to create an eye-catching necklace or bracelet. It has a thick round shape, as if someone had sliced off a piece of a glass cylinder. It is actually made by carefully working molten glass over a mandrel. Because it is handmade, there might be rough edges around the bead hole. We recommend using beading wire, as the rough edges can wear down the thread.
