This Magnificent Vintage Italian Venetian Glass Wedding Cake Bead Necklace is created with hand-created beads in gorgeous shades of: rose pink, blue, yellow, magenta and white, on an ivory or light ecru color background. Each captivating bead has been hand-decorated (similar to decorating a wedding cake) & overlaid with petite florals, swirls and flourishes. This exquisitely embellished necklace is "iced" with coppery-gold-bronze sparkling aventurine swirls that weave around the petite flowers. These miniature flower garden beads, handmade in Italy for decades are of the highest quality and each bead is a work of art in itself.
The Wedding Cake Beads are combined with Beautiful, Hand-Blown opal-like beads, which show subtle markings. These beads produce an effect of natural stones. Because these beads are hand-blown there are slight differences in their size & shape. The necklace features highly polished gold floral end-caps, encasing each bead on both sides.
This Necklace is strung with white silk and is hand-knotted between each bead to prevent the beads from touching one another, preventing any scratching or chipping. The necklace secures with a gold barrel-style clasp which is in perfect working condition.
The Wedding Cake beads measure approximately 8mm in diameter and the simulated opal beads measure approximately 6mm.
Measurements: 19" Long.
These beads are called "Fiorato Beads". They are decorated with flowers, as fiore means flower in Italian, Venetian Fiorato beads require more skill than most with each decoration applied individually by hand to create each unique treasure-bead and a masterpiece when strung together. I think that this necklace would be perfect for the bride!!
