Vintage Black 14 MM Fiorato Beads
Product Details
Vintage, Black Murano Glass,14 mm Round, Venetian Glass Beads.  
We are always searching the "back rooms" of our Italian bead makers in Venice
 and Murano.  Sometimes, we are able to find some of the old, vintage, 
Fiorato beads; occasionally referred to as "Wedding Cake" beads.
The beads were made one by one, under the flame, and are called 
"lampworked beads".  
Fiorato beads have swirls of aventurina (copper filings), pink roses on one side, 
and blue with yellow (or orange), "forget-me-not flowers" on the opposite side.
