Original Message:   Can You Believe This?
I was really surprised (almost SHOCKED!) when I came across strands of drawn red-on-white overlay beads—clearly copying the famous cornaline d'Aleppo beads of Venice. I don't believe I had ever had any suggestion that these were made in Indonesia. And, their appearance is different enough from Venetian, Czech, or ersatz Indian beads, that they are distinctive. They tend to be more rounded (spheroidal or oblate), and larger than most Venetian white-heart beads—and they look like juicy little fruits or berries. I quite like them!
