Hi there,
I like this tassel of trade beads with brass bits and was interested to see that the four long mille fiori beads appear to have been reheated, perhaps to erase the chipping at the ends that often happens with these beads.
I have a big jar of such beads and would love to work with them. Has anyone tried this or used a grinder to alter old mille fioris?
