With colorful patches just below the surface, this Venetian square bead is reminiscent of the brilliant 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. Use these Venetian beads as focal points on necklaces or simple earrings, or string them together for a beautiful 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.
