ABOUT : For hundreds of years all the venetian glass beads have been made on the island of Murano off the coast of Venice. This process is centuries-old. Hand forming a single glass bead on a copper wire and then dissolving the wire out of the bead using nitric acid. This leaves the bead hole crystal clean all the way through. Many "imitation" Venetian beads are mass produced (in places like China and India) with several beads formed on a single steel mandrel that has been coated with a liquid releasing agent. When the beads are later slid off the mandrel, the hole is coated with white powder remnants of the releasing agent. This is a sure fire way to tell the beads are not authentic Venetian beads. Each piece is handcrafted by a master craftsman using 24K gold leaf, sterling silver and even platinum.
