Venetian millefiori round beads are among the most famous glass beads being used today. The literal translation of millefiori is "thousand flowers," and the intricate daisy 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 rose glass gives these beads a beautiful contrasting pattern. 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!
