Millefiori Murano Glass Beads
Millefiori beads get their names from the two Italian words: Mille, meaning thousand, and Fiori, meaning flowers. Millefiori style Murano glass beads are made with handmade glass canes, each containing an individual pattern of various design and color, from star, round, and flower shapes.
Each cane is made by placing the molten glass in a form, then adding layers of color and/or shapes, then drawing the cane out into a rod. These handmade canes are cut into slices that are used by Venetian and Murano glass bead makers in their designs.
Venetian Beads such as these have been made in Venice and Murano for hundreds of years and maintain their popularity.
