Venetian Bead Shop
VenetianBeadShop is a story of the love of Venetian glass, a fascination with the techniques of glass blowing and, of course, a love of Italy and its people & culture. We began importing in 1993 and continue working with the glassmakers and beadmakers of Murano.
We feature ~10,000 styles and colors of our Murano beads which begin with Effetre™ glass canes produced only on the island of Murano. Each Murano bead is handmade one by one using a few simple tools and a lot of experience and technique in lamp working. Sitting behind a torch for hours at a time with a mandrel in one hand and a cane of glass in the other to create the most beautiful beads in the world.
We also stock Sterling Silver and Gold Fill findings as well as Wire and Tools and free design ideas – everything you need to make your jewelry.
