Wedding Cake Beads
Wedding cake beads are referred to as Fiorato, (an Italian word meaning floral). Fiorato beads get their start on a copper wire, which forms the hole when finished, by winding the hot coloured glass around it into a ball. The centuries old process is called in Italian perle `a lume– we call it lampwork. For fiorato, the opaque bead is then decorated according to a theme involving glitter, squiggles and rosebuds. There are numerous variations but the basic idea is the same. The lamp-work method is the most time-consuming in glass bead-making as each bead is formed individually using heat until the desired shape is achieved. Lampwork beads consist of many layers of different coloured glass - sometimes gold and silver leaf is used as an added touch.
This beautiful and dainty necklace is seventy years of age and show little wear. The colours are really beautiful.
