Birthday beads

I opened up my gift and was overjoyed with what I saw! This is a gorgeous and original necklace of  pinched Venetian beads from the 40s/50s.  They have aventurine swirls and the murrine canes that were used to create the bead form part of the designs. It even has that rare pinkish white color that I just love! This one is a keeper.

I have come across these kinds of beads once before but they were loose ones and I could only make this….with them

Gorgeous aren’t they?
