Old Stock Venetian Beads

Often referred to as a veritable Bead Library, our collection of Venetian glass beads embraces the colorful history of the bead making process during late 19th century Italy and the timeless beauty of the glass bead as an art form in itself.

The largest portion of our Italian bead collection is the remaining stock from the famed Societa Veneziana de Conterie on the island of Murano, Italy.

Many of these glass beads are the old "greasy" or translucent colors found on antique Native American beaded art in museums and galleries. The colors have soft, sweet gradations of hues not often found today.

Note about bead sizes: We have converted the original (mm) sizes of our Venetians to the more widely used Czech sizing system.
