Hello friends, I wanted to start the week with this piece I just finished. I love Venetian wedding cake beads. I know its hard to choose among the different beads but I have a weakness for these wedding cake beads. I love the cheerful flower design and colors. I love even more how individual they are. They are never exactly the same. These group of beads date back to the 1940s. I was fortunate enough to buy them from Venice from someone who has been selling antique and vintage Venetians for a long time.
As I was fortunate enough to have a good number of them, I decided to make a sautoir style necklace. And because it’s long enough, you can even wear it as a double strand necklace!
