Millefiori Bracelet

About this design:

I was gifted a lot of Millefiori beads so I’ve been trying to use them. These yellow Millefiori’s have a touch of blue in them so I’ve paired them with some blue beads. I’m not really sure if this combination works so I may take this piece apart and remake with yellow beads. I would appreciate hearing your thoughts on this. Thank you!


Millefiori beads, blue glass square beads and round beads, faceted gold hematite.

    The blue sets off the beads perfectly — it picks up on the blue centers and draws the eye. If you changed to yellow, the millefiori effect would get lost. Beautiful combo. At first glance I thought it was cloisonné.

    I like the combination. All yellow would not stand out like this does.

    I agree that the blue brings out the blue in the millefiori! I think the blue would be lost with the all yellow beads. It is perfect just the way it is now.

    Works for me Althea. Just lovely. I really like millefiori beads and you used them beautifully.

    I agree with everyone else…blue and yellow are great together regardless. Remember this…all colors of nature go together.
