Millefiori Amore

Hey lampworkers - aren't these amazing?

They're a fragment of a strand of vintage Venetian beads that I found at a yard sale. The vivid orange and white millefiori (thousand flowers) on the navy blue base beads are a terrific colorway. So much patience to make these, I cannot even imagine attempting to re-create them.

They're available in my Etsy 'Curious Old Things' shop. (sold)
