These millefiori round beads are among the most famous Venetian glass beads being used today. The literal translation of millefiori is "thousand flowers," and the intricate flower embellishments in these beads are infused using world famous Murano glass rods and adorned with brilliant gold foil. These beads are created with the Zanfirico technique, which consists of heating glass rods, twisting them together, and coating them with a clear glass encasing. This results in an intricate filigree effect. The combination of the gold foil and aquamarine glass gives these beads beautiful color. Use these Venetian beads as focal points on necklaces or simple earrings, or string them together for a beautiful effect. We recommend using beading wire and not thread, as the rough edges can wear down the thread. Pick up some of these beautiful Venetian beads today, and you will quickly roundover why these artistic beads have become so popular!

"The design in these beads is crisp and clear. The aquamarine color is bright and beautiful. I used them in a necklace similar to the design idea for the amethyst zanfirico. They are a little large for earrings, so could be used for them and would be stunning and dressy looking."
"Wow! The size shows off their beauty very well. I'm waiting to find just the right gold colored spacer to hang on a longer choker cable. I purchased three and the buyer will definitely have a one-of-a-kind."
