This Venetian glass 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 gold foil, adding to the radiant color of this bead. The pure beauty in this bead is viewable from afar and spectacularly clear up close. 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.
