Founded in 1983, Bergamini Beads is one of the earliest American
makers of Venetian Cane Glass, which was first developed in Italy in the
1600s. Rods of colored glass are twisted & pulled by two glass blowers
to 30 feet or more in length, then hand cut on a diamond saw and
polished to a high shine. Because of the complexity of this work, only a
handful of American artisans endeavor to make this kind of bead.
Bergamini Beads has always been a preferred supplier for jewelers
and designers due to our ability to offer brilliant and aesthetically
interesting color, superior quality glass finish and individualized customer
Bergamini Beads offers Latticino and Double Latticino styles while
