Several years ago, I snagged a strand of these black and white "rattlesnake" Venetian glass trade beads.

It wasn't until I went to use them this week that I realized why they were so affordable. Most of them have lost the white trails. (sigh) I never notice this until AFTER I buy beads, of course.

I seem to remember someone talking about how this can be repaired. Can these be backfilled with polymer clay, and baked?? Any other suggestions??
