This green "Venice" necklace showcases Italian glass beads both old and new, large and small. The drop at the bottom is seed bead embroidery done with teeny tiny antique Italian seed beads. I love love love these little beads, and they are so small it takes forever to make anything with them! They are over 100 years old and no-one makes beads this small anymore. The large center bead comes from my travels to Murano, in Venice, Italy, where the tiny beads were once made. There is a picture of me with the woman who made the beautiful center bead. That was the best day ever, it was raining so hard we had Murano all to to ourselves. Oregon tourists don't mind a rainstorm! O.K., details: the center is 1" in diameter and wrapped with 14k. gold-filled wire. The necklace is strung with freshwater pearls and more tiny antique seed beads and larger Italian glass accent beads. It is 16" long with a 2" extender chain. All the findings are 14k. gold-filled.
