These gorgeous vintage beads are vintage Venetian glass flowers on wire. They are milky mint green translucent glass on copper wires. These measure about 10mm across and 8-10mm deep. Made individually, the size and shape may vary a bit. In wonderful condition, these beautifully detailed bell shaped flowers may be a little dusty and the wires may show some patina. The length of the wires vary, most are over 2 inches long. You will receive 2 of these special vintage Venetian flower beads, as shown in the first 3 photos. The last photo shows an original bouquet.

We date our vintage Venetian glass flowers on wire to the 1920's, see our blog post here:

If you decide to turn these into bead drops, for use as dangles or charms, first you may need to cut the wire to the appropriate length. Then, with one pair of pliers, hold the headpin securely at the base of the wire near the glass and using a second pair of pliers, turn the loop from the end of the wire in. That way you won't stress the connection of the wire and glass.
