Venetian Glass in Wire
These glass beads are made in Venice, Italy primarily on the island of Murano. They first take a small ball of the glass and then roll the molten glass ball across thin sheets of 24kt gold foil or .925 sterling silver. The bead with a foil exterior is then completed by gently melting on top of the foil transparent colors of Murano glass. The 24kt gold foil under the colors gives it a rich glow, enhancing the color and the .925 sterling silver foil gives a brightened and crisp color to the glass. Wire is gold-platted, gold-filled 14/20k or sterling silver (individually noted).
