What’s special about millefiori?🤔
The millefiori technique involves the production of glass canes, known as mirror, with multicolored patterns which are viewable only from the cut ends of the cane. A mirror car is heated in a furnace and pulled until thin while still maintaining the cross section’s design. It is them cut into beads or discs when cooled.

This glassmaking technique was invented by the ancient Egyptians in the 2nd century bc.

Cool huh?
