Millefiori is a glasswork technique which produces distinctive decorative patterns on glassware. The term millefiori is a combination of the Italian words "mille" (thousand) and "fiori" (flowers).
Each cane is made by placing the molten glass in a form, then adding layers of color and/or shapes, then drawing the cane out into a rod. These handmade canes are cut into slices that are used by Venetian and Murano glass bead makers in their designs.
These beads are made of clay and measure 18MM x 8MM.
The main colors are green, yellow, white and black. No two beads are the same.
