Description
Millefiori glass-- the name means "a thousand flowers"-- was first perfected in the classical world. Ancient Alexandria especially was famous for its brilliant glassware composed of different colors melded together in abstract floral patterns. Later, Venetian artisans on the island of Murano revived the centuries-old technique with great success. These extraordinary beads, bright and bold as a contemporary painting, are timeless in their appeal. Traditional yet innovative all at once, they are the ideal adornment for someone who appreciates a true classic. - (FJ.3209)
