These antique Venetian millefiori beads are more than just glass; they are pieces of history that traveled from Venice to Africa, playing a crucial role in trade and cultural exchanges. The millefiori technique, which translates to "a thousand flowers," involves layering multiple colors of glass to create intricate floral patterns. These beads were highly prized in Ghana and across Africa, where they were often used as currency and for ceremonial purposes.
