8/0 Transparent Dark Red Venetian Seed Beads
Size 8/0 beads, 22g per bag.
These Venetian seed beads were manufactured between the late 1800s and the 1920s, they are a exquisite example of Venetian Craftsmanship. They were manufactured by Societa Veneziana Conterie which was a a collective of 16 independent bead makers that joined together between 1898 and 1992. Many of the glass canes used to manufacture these beads date back much earlier than the formation of the collective. Due to the hand-crafted nature of this curated selection of beads, slight variation in shape, size and uniformity are to be expected and embraced.
