Venetian Floral Enameled Glass Beads
Antique, hand-knotted Venetian beads are gold-foiled and have a floral enamel overlay. They look very much like cloisonne but the technique is different (and is quite labor-intensive). Each bead measures 3/8" and the strand measures slightly over 24". Fish-hook slide-in clasp.
