Vintage, Black "Fiorato" Flowered Venetian Bead Necklace
Notice that each Venetian Glass Bead is made with a base color of Murano glass; using Black Murano glass canes, or rods, in this necklace. Then a band of Aventurina, (copper filings), is melted onto the center of the bead. Copper is
also melted onto the Venetian Bead in a "zig-zag" decorative pattern. Red and White canes of Murano glass are used to make the Pink "roses", and they are also melted onto the center copper band. Next to that are dots of blue to represent flowers called "for-get-me-knots".
This bead is made in several, time consuming steps. These antique style Fiorato necklaces usually sell for a much higher price elsewhere.
