This small Venetian glass heart bead has a variety of rich colors just below the surface, reminiscent of the brilliant, colorful art of Gustav Klimt. Just below the pieces of bright glass is a core of silver foil, adding to the radiant color of this bead. The combination of these pieces of glass with the smooth transparent texture creates a unique textured effect. Due to the handmade nature of these beads, there might be rough edges around the bead holes, created where the glass connects to the mandrel. Use a Bead Reamer
to remove these sharp edges and smooth the inside of the bead.
