Crystal clear glass wraps around silver foil to create a stunning round Venetian glass bead with a shiny center. This 10mm bead is light enough to be used in earrings. You can also use it as the focal point in a bracelet. Each bead is handmade by holding glass rods over a flame, then gently working the molten glass over the mandrels. Due to the handmade nature of these beads, there might be rough edges around the bead holes. Because of this, we suggest using beading wire instead of thread.
