Bead Making Techniques
More information about us: Venetian Bead Shop is a direct importer of Venetian Beads and Murano Beads. Your source of wholesale Venetian Beads and wholesale Murano Glass beads. Working directly with the beadmakers of Venice and the island of Murano, often designing our own beads, we feature over 8000 different colors and styles of traditional and modern Venetian glass beads. The beads begin with Effetre Moretti™ glass canes which are produced on the island of Murano. Each bead is handmade one by one by beadmakers sitting behind a torches with a mandrel in one hand and a cane of glass in the other, known as lampwork. We introduced Venetian Dichroic Beads to the US through our efforts with our beadmakers in Murano and revived an ancient technique of furnace glass with our partner in Murano. We continue to bring new and innovative ideas to this age old Murano industry. We have been importing Venetian Beads continuously since 1993, shipping worldwide. We also offer Swarovski® Crystals, Gold Findings, Sterling Silver Findings, Softflex™ Wire, Beadalon Wire and a variety of Beading Tools and Supplies.
