By request of a client, I attempted to create my own version of a now unavailable hollow Venetian bead: Both sides of this gold-encrusted hollow core flat oval have a single, jeweled dot at the center. This particular hollow oval is made using a beautiful deep red transparent glass. The jeweled dots are emerald glass:





And using a transparent glass known as Black Diamond gray. (Gold & jewels & diamonds, oh my...!) The jeweled dots are intense black glass:



And a georgeus deep aqua transparent glass. The jeweled dots are intense red glass:



I also made hollow cubes in the same 3 colors:



Thanks for looking!!

Those are really cool! I don't have much experience with glass, but those look exceptionally difficult to make and it was executed beautifully.  Grin

I think they look like eyes too. Really love 'em.

OK, dumb question time: does "jewelled" refer to what looks like the air bubbles trapped in each dot?

i think the actual dots (the contrasting color that was looking like eyes to us) are the "jewels".  because it's like a jewel set into the "metal" of the gilt (gilded?) part.
