These Venetian foil-lined rectangular beads are a beautiful amethyst color lined with a silver leaf.  While most foil beads found on the market are Chinese reproductions, these are genuine Italian glass. 

They are made in Murano using the classic wound "lampworking" technique.  It is a very time-consuming method since each bead is formed individually by hand.  Murano glass canes are heated to a molten state and wrapped around a metal rod until the desired shape is achieved. Layers of different colored glass, gold and silver leaf, clear glass, and a top coating are used to produce the desired effect. The bead is then annealed, a process by which it is slowly cooled to prevent breakage.  This annealing process is what distinguishes Venetian from Chinese foil, because the Chinese glass is much more prone to breakage due to a lack of annealing.  After this, it is removed from the rod which leaves a hole.

These timeless beads will add an elegant touch to your projects.  They will look beautiful accompanied by gemstones, freshwater pearls, and Swarovski crystals.  Pair with sterling accent beadsto bring out the silver undertones from the foil lining. The different colors of Venetian glass also coordinate nicely with one another.  Run decorative headpins through the holes and wire wrap to make a pendant and matching earring set!

As a result of the craftsmanship behind their creation, there are slight variations in size and color among the beads.  Beads measure 35x18mm and are sold individually.
