About

Sharing with you all my passion & promoting the Art of Mosaic and Glass and love for Millefiori.

I've started creating mosaics in 2016 and I've completely fallen in love with Mosaic Art! For me it is a perfect way to express myself creatively plus it is really just my kind of relaxation/meditation.
For my work, most of the time I use glazed porcelain tiles and glass but very early on something else caught my eye... I have fallen in love with MILLEFIORI.

For those who don't know millefiori are glass beads used for Mosaic Decoration, Fused Glass, Murano Lampwork & Jewellery Making. The term millefiori is a combination of the Italian words "mille" (thousand) and "fiori" (flowers).

Right about the same time I've learned how difficult it is to find good quality handmade MILLEFIORI at a reasonable price. I've started finding suppliers, testing them, handpicking some of the millefiori for myself. However, I got to the point that I had more than I could use in my mosaic art so I've opened the Etsy shop to share my love with you.

Nowadays we sell various millefiori, mosaic tools and supplies.

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

Please be aware photos can make items appear larger or smaller than they actually are. Images shows random pack, beads you will receive will vary in colours and sizes to the one pictured. I often photograph items beside 4 international coins for size reference, but always have mm listed. Please check the sizes in the description to make sure it's suitable.

Wholesale availability

I have a bulk/wholesale section where discounts are offered for 50 / 100 of an item. If you would like 100+ of an item, it's usually possible for a custom listing to be created with a wholesale discount.

Returns and refunds

We gladly accept returns and exchanges but you need to contact me within 7 days of delivery and ship the item within 14 days of delivery. Refunds will be given for the purchase price only and excludes shipping costs. Refunds will be processed after the item has been returned in the condition it was sent to the buyer and the buyer will pay all shipping costs.

Duty & Customs

When a package is shipped internationally, it may be subject to import taxes, customs duties, and/or fees imposed by the destination country.
Generally sellers on Etsy are unable to predict which of these fees and it is buyers that pay these additional fees.

Shipping costs & time

It takes me 1 working day to ship the items. The shipping costs and times are as follows:
― £1.30 UK, 2–3 working days
― £3.20 Europe, 3–5 working days
― £3.80 Worldwide, 5-7 working days.

Shipping times provided are based on data from a chosen supplier. Seller is not responsible for the delays caused by the shipping provider.

Can I use the beads with any other COE 90 glass?

Our beads are COE 90. That in theory means you could use them with other glass that is the same COE. However compatibility is a very complex technical issue and matching COEs does NOT ensure compatibility between glasses.

The ONLY way you can insure that our beads will be compatible with another manufacturer's glass is to conduct your own small stress tests.

Do the millefiori beads have a hole drilled through them so you can thread them?

Majority of the beads do not have holes in them but some of them might have tiny ones. However they will be too small to thread them.

Additional info

Millefiori are for indoor use and are not suitable for floor ground.
CHOKING HAZARD WARNING. DO NOT CONSUME. NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN.

ALL PICTURES SHOWN ARE FOR ILLUSTRATION PURPOSE ONLY, ACTUAL PRODUCT MAY VARY.

Images illustrate SAMPLE mix of designs & colours. Your mix will not necessarily include the one presented. We try to assure there is a good variety of beads but as there are so many designs and colours, it’s not possible to make any of two bags look the same.
