Bead photo of the day

Today’s post features a seriously gorgeous Millefiori trade bead from the late 1800s. This one has a rare cobalt blue base and white and yellow canes that really look like flowers. I was lucky enough to obtain this beautiful bead from the collection of Ms. Elizabeth Rieth who collected beads for over 30 years. I’m sure it’ll make a gorgeous piece of jewelry but for now I’m content to marvel at its prettiness!
