Hi Jamey,

My concept of what falls under the title of old Venetian "Wedding Cake" beads is about the same as yours except I would add "jewel tones" to the mix.

But basically, beads with raised trailed decorations, muted or jewel tones, with or without avventurina or gold foil, floral patterns, clear and colored glass. Beads can be in ellipsoidal, round, tubular, rectangular and tabular shapes.

The first image shows tubular shaped beads.

The second image shows "Wedding Cake" beads in the third and fourth strand from the top.
