Vintage Murano Beads

A couple of inspiring additions to my collection of vintage Venetian glass beads.

I almost didn't keep these. The color combination of green tinged yellow with aventurine sparkles is so nasty.

This next pair is very intriguing.

The quality is lacking, there is a ton of crap in the glass and they're pretty sloppy.

But, oh, that shape!
A lozenge with bulbous side wings. I've been thinking about how to re-create these - I am thinking that using a pair of tile nippers might work for squeezing them into shape. Any ideas out there?
