Venetian Faceted Beads
Venetian Cheyenne pink faceted beads, deep color, from the early 1800's or late 1700's. Cheyenne pink, in surprisingly good condition, 11mm diameter. These beads were made one at a time, lamp-wound in Italy and then, by popular design, ground down to make flattened facets in Nigeria. Hole size is about 2mm. This type is extremely rare!
