Inside St. Mark's Basilica, Venice, Italy. We squeaked in the tourist line right before the cut off time, and we were in there with very few people, at sunset, nothing but candles and some dusty sun rays. Unbelievable sacred and beautiful place! Those images covering the walls are made out of tiny gold mosaic tiles. Millions of them.
This Byzantine Translation Bracelet is a trendy twist on traditional Byzantine chain maille. One of our most impressive free seed bead patterns, this two-tone silver and gold bracelet truly has the effect of chain, but with the delicate intricacy of seed beads. You'll definitely keep 'em guessing with this knockout piece!
Byzantine Collar Inspired by the ancient Byzantine collars and gold work. Broad collars were very popular in the Byzantine Era. Using peyote and right angle weave, you will create components incorporating Venetian gold foil beads, freshwater pearls and semi-precious stones (some of which are bezeled with seed beads).
