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. 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! Note: The exterior gold foil on these beads will wear off after time, especially in contact with oil and lotion.

"Thought I'd try these beads for a necklace. I really liked the design on the bead. It turned out great! The gold matched really nice with the gold-filled beads, and goes really well with pearls. It's a bit heavy for earrings, but I loved as a focal bead for my necklace. I will be ordering more Venetian beads in the future."
"This bead in this color matches light gold pearls really well. It would also match white pearls really well. The size is just large enough to be a smallish focal for a pearl necklace. The size is a little large for earrings except for a large-size wearer. If used for earrings, they might be a little heavy. I don't know how durable this bead would be for a bracelet. The picture on my monitor matches the item well."
