Mosaic glass beads are believed to have originated in Western Asia. The style became popular in Egypt, Syria and Rome, and had a renaissance in 16th century Venice where the glass became known as Millefiori (a thousand flowers).

These beads were artistically made by laying colored glass rods next to each around a middle section often to create a flower-like pattern. These rods were then heated so they could be stretched and fused together. The bar was sliced into beads which were pierced for jewelry.
