Like miniature paperweights, these 1/2" wide glass blown beads have tiny flecks of copper foil and floating white glass. These have the original brass beads caps and original brass screw together clasp. It measures 16" long and has all the original beads. Murano Beads made by first making a small ball of the glass and then rolling the molten glass ball across thin sheets of 24kt gold foil, 24kt white gold foil or .925 sterling silver or adventurine copper flakes.  The bead with this foil exterior, is then completed by gently melting on top of the foil transparent colors of Moretti Murano glass. If 24kt gold foil is used under the colors gives it a rich glow, enhancing the color, while the 24kt white gold foil gives the bead a softer shade of color, refined and warm. Using .925 sterling silver, the true color of the glass is brightened and becomes crisp. Truly an art, these are fabulous old beads!!       VintageSparkles offers Layaway on all our Etsy pieces regardless of which site it comes from.All layaway payments will need to be in the form of a check or money order only.  Please remember that vintage & antique items are not mint, nor are they perfect but they sure are full of old history and charm.
