These are our famous Pazze "Crazy" beads, named because of how they are made. Our bead maker was making thousands of rings for a customer but the guy setting the temperatures in the annealing oven had it all wrong so every last one of them cracked. Being Venetian, famously, thrifty, they decided to make beads by once again putting them into the annealing oven, this time to heat them to a fluid state and used these pieces to make beads.
Absolutely everyone is unique.....This is part of old stock I found at my supplier's warehouse. Once these are gone we sincerely hope never to have them again.
The colors in this are a base of black and aventurina. The size is approximately 14mm.
