The intricate technique of creating millefiori beads involves layering glass canes to form beautiful floral patterns, then slicing these canes into beads. These mosaic beads, also known as millefiori beads, played a significant role in trade with Ghana and other parts of Africa, where they were highly valued for their beauty and craftsmanship.
