Nice beads Nishedha.

Please be aware, the name is spelled "MILLEFIORI."

The mistaken "e" ending has been inadvertently most-promoted in The History of Beads (1987). This was an error that was not caught by the proof-reader. I corrected this in the 2009 edition. However, once again the same thing happened. The proof-reader did not consult my notes for Lois, and check that the correction had been made. So it's still there (!).

There is no such word as "millefiore." That is not how Italian works as a language.

Be well. Jamey
