The silver core on this 10mm topaz Venetian glass cube lightens the dark yellow glass and gives it a soft shine from within. You can try this bead with silver or gold elements and an accent color. Because this bead was handmade, it may have some rough edges around the bead hole from where the glass was connected to the mandrel. We recommend using beading wire and not thread, as the rough edges can wear down the thread. Be sure to view more of our Venetian glass beads.
