Hello,

I'm new to this Forum, I collect glass beads from the 17th-19th centuries. I believe this is a strand of beads made a few years ago by Luigi Cattelon from old Fratelli Toso cane. I think Cattelon's mother was a Toso.

Any thoughts?

I love it!

Great strand...

I'm going to be posting pictures of some excavated Murano glass beads sometime in the future. Including some interesting 16th century beads from around Moundville Ohio.

Nancy, that is really gorgeous!!! I've been looking for a millefiori or murrine necklace, but none of the beads are as gorgeous as those.

Hi Shandiane78,

I got the beads from Luigi Cattelon in Murano. His website is www.muranomade.com. It may not be up and running yet, I know he is working on it. Nancy
