We are excited to welcome Nicole and Francesco from The Glory of Beads along with their amazing selection of authentic Venetian Glass Beads and Jewelry. Nicole and Francesco buy these beads directly from the local artisans in Murano and Venice, Italy and bring them to the states for Bead shops like us!
In addition to the lovely lampwork beads, Nicole and Francesco will have vintage Venetian seed beads, finished jewelry, vintage clasps and components, as well as copies of the book that she wrote! Her book includes extensive archival research, interviews, and historical photographs from the early 1900s! This book is a collector’s item for anyone interested in the beads and the history of Venice, Italy.
Take a trip to "Venice" with us and shop these beautiful beads at Island Cove Beads & Gallery this April!
